Best of 2010 - Heartwarming Moment

Dec 24, 2010

We continue our Best of 2010 Countdown with the most heartwarming moment of the year, just in time for Christmas. This year, the 2000 US Olympic team was awarded with the bronze medal from the Sydney Olympic team final after one of the Chinese gymnasts on the 3rd place team was found underage. The 2000 US team was together again for the first time in a decade and received their medals in a formal medal ceremony at the 2010 Visa Championships in Hartford. 3-time Olympian Dominique Dawes always had a special relationship with her coach, Kelli Hill, but shocked everyone by running down from the floor to put her medal around Kelli's neck, then announced she would be giving the medal to Kelli.
Make sure to thank your coaches this year for all their hard work and commitment. Merry Christmas!
