Jordyn Wieber is a retired artistic gymnast. The 21-year-old from DeWitt, Michigan was a member of the Fierce Five gymnastics team that brought home gold for the USA at the 2012 Olympics. Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, Kyla Ross, and Jordyn won the USA’s second ever gold medal in the team competition.[ngg_images source=”galleries” container_ids=”243″ display_type=”photocrati-nextgen_basic_thumbnails” override_thumbnail_settings=”0″ thumbnail_width=”240″ thumbnail_height=”160″ thumbnail_crop=”1″ images_per_page=”6″ number_of_columns=”0″ ajax_pagination=”1″ show_all_in_lightbox=”1″ use_imagebrowser_effect=”0″ show_slideshow_link=”1″ slideshow_link_text=”[Show slideshow]” order_by=”sortorder” order_direction=”ASC” returns=”included” maximum_entity_count=”500″]Besides her gold medal in 2012, Jordyn had plenty of success at the international level. She was a member of the national team from 2006-2012, and she had an awesome run at the 2011 World Championships. Jordyn won golds in the all-around and team events and a bronze in the balance beam competition.
After the Olympics, Jordyn enrolled at UCLA. But because she signed with Wasserman Media Group and earned money from her Olympic success, she was ineligible to join their gymnastics team. Even though she can’t get out there herself, Jordyn still finds other ways to help the team. Jordyn used to be their team manager, and she’s currently a volunteer assistant coach for the Bruins.
Let’s celebrate the career of Jordyn and wish UCLA good luck at the 2017 NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Championships by taking a look at her hottest photos in the gallery above.
