May 17, 2013

"Courtney McCool: Moments of Pure Joy" In this episode of Flashback Interview with U.S. Olympic medalist Courtney McCool, she takes us back to the 2004 selection process beginning with the 2004 US Championships. Courtney talks about her famous peel off bars and how that affected her second day of competition. The selection process continued at the Ranch with the Selection Camp which didn't go as well as Courtney hoped but still landed her a place on the 2004 Olympic Team. She talks about the selection camp and how hard it was to balance her joy of being chosen with the heart ache she felt for the girls left behind. As she put it " It felt like a Soap Opera".
