USA Gymnastics will induct the 2004 men’s Olympic team, Dianne Durham and Rebecca Bross, among others, to the 2021 Hall of Fame class in St. Louis on Saturday, June 26. The event will also see the 2020 Class of the Hall of Fame. Fame was admitted after the ceremony was postponed last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dianne Durham will be admitted posthumously. She won the 1981 and 1982 United States Junior Championships. A year later, she recorded her name in the history books by becoming the first black gymnast to win the entire senior national championship event. Durham passed away earlier this year.

The 2004 men’s Olympic gymnast team won a silver medal for the country in Athens and ended a 20-year drought in the program. The team consisted of Jason Gatson, Morgan Hamm, Brett McClure, Paul Hamm, Blaine Wilson, and Guard Young.

Gene Watson and Jim Aamodt to be admitted posthumously

Jim Aamodt will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award. He trained 25 gymnasts who made it to the US National Team and finished with 18 world championship titles. Like Durham, Aamodt will also be honored posthumously when he passed away in May.

Rebecca Bross has won six World Championship medalists and is currently practicing physical therapy. In 2009, he achieved overall silver along with a bronze medal on the uneven bars. A year later, he returned with four medals in Rotterdam.

Chris Estrada is an American trampoline gymnast who won the individual gold medal at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro. He made his Olympic debut at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but finished in 15th position.

Gene Watson will also be inducted posthumously into the Hall of Fame. He was a part of the Men’s Gymnastics Development Program for almost 40 years and passed away in 2020.
