Vanessa Atler Back Blogging

By April 25, 2011

Follow me on:

Vanessa Atler at 1996 US nationalsFormer US national champ Vanessa Atler is now a gymnastics coach, and is blogging about her coaching experiences, and talking very openly about the run-up to the 2000 Olympics. (She was controversially left off the team).

It's definitely worth a read -- she's got interesting opinions and coaching ideas, and is providing honest answers to questions about her career in her "just ask me!" section.

Atler was one of my favorite gymnasts of the late '90s, and was one of the first to keep an online journal for her fans. It's great to see her back at it, and happily going about her life post-gymnastics.

Read her blog.
