Pre-Olympic Workout Wednesday with Jordyn Wieber and Twistars USA
2012 USA Olympian and reigning World Champion Jordyn Wieber makes one final appearance in Gymnastike's Workout Wednesday before taking on the world with Team USA in London. Wieber is the defending U.S. and World all around Champion and will be one of the favorites for the elusive Olympic all around gold medal.
Coach John Geddert has been selected as Head Coach of Team USA in London after leading the young American team to decisive victory at the 2011 World Championships. The U.S. team of Wieber, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, and Kyla Ross are the favorites for the team gold medal. The Americans have not won an Olympic Team title since the Magnificent Seven captured the gold in 1996.
Also appearing in the video is fellow elite Casey Jo Magee who traveled to Twistars for a training session. Wieber is training alongside the dominant Gedderts' Twistars USA level 10 team, including Grace Williams, fresh off her second J.O. National all around title, former junio elite Kami Moore who persevered through hip surgery for a phenomenal season, landing a spot on the 2012 J.O. National Team, and 2011 J.O. National Champion Bayle Pickel.
