The No. 1 Gymnastics Podcast in the Galaxy

Three World Champion Coaches Get Candid

Marta Karolyi’s last competition as head coach of the U.S. gymnastics team was the 2016 Olympic Games. Since then, everything at USA Gymnastics (USAG) has changed. The biggest sexual abuse scandal in sports history was uncovered and leadership at USAG turned over multiple times. What do the coaches of U.S. World Champions think about the cultural reshaping within USA Gymnastics?

The special guests this episode are Cleo Washington, co-coach of 2017 all-around World Champion Morgan Hurd; Sarah Korngold, current coach of team World Champion Shilese Jones; and Owen Field, coach of team World Champion Leanne Wong and also associate head coach at Florida University.
