When Bridget Sloan was 4, her parents signed her up for gymnastics to channel her energy. Now, 21 years later, she’s an Olympic medalist, world champion and nine-time NCAA national champion.
Sloan entered the world of elite-level gymnastics at age 10. She went on to earn a silver medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and became the all-around world champion the following year. Sloan earned a spot in the 2012 U.S. Olympic trials but withdrew after suffering an elbow injury on opening day. In 2013, she accepted an athletics scholarship to the University of Florida, where she led the Gators women’s gymnastics team with 27 title events.
Sloan is the only woman to ever win the U.S., World and NCAA championships in the all-around competition and was the first Gator to score a perfect 10 in all four events. After graduation, Sloan worked for the SEC Network before taking a job with ChemStation in Orlando.
