TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -
Alabama gymnast Terin Humphrey, a two-time NCAA Champion during her Crimson Tide tenure, was inducted into the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame recently as part of the 2003 World Championship team.
"Terin's induction into the USAG Hall of Fame is a testament to the tremendous career that she enjoyed, one that saw her reach tremendous heights on the national, international and collegiate stages," Alabama head coach Sarah Patterson said.
Humphrey and her teammates, Courtney Kupets, Chellsie Memmel, Carly Patterson, Tasha Schwikert, Hollie Vise and alternates Annia Hatch and Ashley Postell, claimed the United States' first team world title, as well as three individual event medals in 2003.
Humphrey, Kupets, Patterson and Hatch went on to compete at the 2004 Olympic Games, where they won the team silver medal. Humphrey added an Olympic Silver medal of her own at the 2004 Games when she took second on the uneven bars.
As a collegian, Humphrey won the 2005 and 2007 NCAA Uneven Bars Championships and was a 10-time All-American. A two-time Academic All-SEC honoree, the Bates City, Mo. native also won Southeastern Conference and NCAA Regional titles.
The other Class of 2008 inductees included Olympians Jessica Davis, Marie Walther Bilski and Wayne Young; synchronized trampoline and double mini-trampoline world champion Stuart Ransom; two-time NCAA champion Brent Simmons; coach Mary Lee Tracy and contributor Wendy Hilliard. Kenneth Allen was named the 2008 Lifetime Achievement recipient in recognition of his contributions to gymnastics.
