Tabitha Yim to Become Head Coach at Arizona

Former USA National team member Tabitha Yim has accepted a head coaching position at the University of Arizona Gymnastics team.

She is replacing current head coach, Bill Ryden who is retiring after 17 years at the helm of Arizona Gymnastics. 

Tabitha, also a former World Team member, has been an assistant coach with her alma mater, Stanford University for the past five years, where she has helped the team score their two highest scores at the Super Six final in 2012 with a 197.500 and just a few weeks ago at the 2015 Super Six with a 197.250.

She competed for Stanford from 2005 to 2008 and was a 14 time all American. She won a bronze medal at the 2001 World Championships with the team. She placed fourth at the 2004 Olympic trials. She was coached by Beth and Steve Rybacki at Charter Oaks Gliders.

After graduating from Stanford, Tabitha taught sixth and ninth grade before she went into coaching. 

Congratulations to Tabitha on her new role!

Katelyn Ohashi Sets the Rumors Straight

American Cup winner Katelyn Ohashi has been out of competition for a while due to injuries.

Since she won the American Cup in March, she's been largely absent from the USA Gymnastics scene. In April, she turned down international assignments at the City of Jesolo Cup because she was recovering from shoulder surgery. She was absent from the national championships in August, presumably for the same reason.
