The Vault: Elizabeth Price Is An Amazing Gymnast, Also Hates Whipped Cream

Stanford Athletics

Everybody knows — everybody here, at least! — what an incredible gymnast Elizabeth Price is, both now at Stanford and in her decorated career as an elite gymnast. Price’s accolades are impressive to say the least: medals in Stuttgart, medals in Glasgow, medals at the Pacific Rim Championships. Since retiring from elite gymnastics, she hasn’t slowed down, earning multiple NCAA All-American honors as well as the 2015 national title on vault.

But did you know that Price hates whipped cream? That she loves Marvel’s Avengers? And that Nicki Minaj is favorite musical artist?

FloGymnastics has followed Price for years, and that’s exactly what we try to do: take you beyond the competition floor and into the lives, dedication, and individuality of these amazing gymnasts.

Price is set to compete yet again this weekend at Elevate the Stage in Augusta, Georgia — which you can watch LIVE right here on FloGymnastics. She’ll be with her Stanford team competing alongside Nebraska, Georgia, and Illinois. But before we see her routines for the Cardinal, let’s take a look back in the gymnastics vault.

1. Not Quite 20 Questions | 2012

Former FloGymnastics (then Gymnastike) editor Anne Phillips caught up with Price a few weeks before the 2012 London Olympics, where Price was an alternate. In a crowded, bustling room, they chatted about, well, everything: Justin Bieber, going to the movies with her friends and family, and playing lacrosse with her brother.

3. Going To School: A Perfect 10 | 2018

This video comes to us courtesy of All Things Gymnastics by Cordelia Price, and shows us a little bit more recent history. Price earned her first career 10.0 on uneven bars in this perfect routine at the NorCal Classic in Stanford, California, on January 8. Not a bad way to open your senior season, huh?

As the NCAA season wraps up, Price is still a gymnast to keep an eye on — she’s one of the top collegiate gymnasts in the country.

Don’t forget to tune in to Elevate the Stage this weekend and catch Price LIVE on FloGymnastics; we’ll be on-site in Augusta, Georgia, with all the action.

Opinion: The Engaged, Strategic Leadership That USA Gymnastics Needs

For over a year now, USA Gymnastics has been operating in a state of turmoil from the backlash of Larry Nassar’s horrific crimes. What started as the largest sex abuse scandal in sports history has evolved to show major flaws in the way that the national governing body for gymnastics is run. They have been through a wave of resignations at the highest levels: the president of USAG, the national team coordinator, and the senior vice president of the Women’s Program, to name a few.

Most Difficulty In The 2018 NCAA Super Six: Vault Edition

Alonzo Adams-USA TODAY Sports

In our fourth and final installment on the most difficulty in the 2018 NCAA Super Six, we are taking a look at vault. Specifically, we're analyzing which teams had the most 10.0 start value vaults. In 2016, the Yurchenko full was devalued to a 9.95 start value, and many teams since then have reacted by upping the difficulty of the vaults their gymnasts compete. We have seen more Yurchenko 1.5s and even Yurchenko doubles.
