TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -
Terin Humphrey, who won gold as part of the United State's 2003 World Championship Team, a pair of silver medals at the 2004 Olympics and two NCAA Uneven Bars Championships as part of the Crimson Tide Gymnastics team graduated Saturday from the University of Alabama with a degree in Criminal Justice.
"Being a part of the Alabama Gymnastics team and winning two national titles on the uneven bars was tremendous, truly the icing on the cake of my career," Humphrey said. "But for me, the best part of my college experience was the chance to come to Alabama and receive a truly phenomenal education."
Humphrey graduated in four years, joining the Crimson Tide for the Spring semester in 2005 after touring the country with the T.J. Maxx Olympic Tour. She won the NCAA Uneven Bars Championship as a freshman in 2005 and followed that up with a second national uneven bars title in 2007, just months after double-elbow surgery cleaned up problems she'd been working through for years.
The Bates City, Mo. native also won Southeastern Conference and NCAA Regional titles during her Crimson Tide career and finished her career as a 10-time All-American.
