Our weekly spotlight features a gymnast that has gotten off to a great start in the early goings of UCLA’s gymnastics season…
Samantha Peszek, a 5′ 1″ sophomore, is the defending NCAA balance beam champion, winning that event at the 2011 nationals, and she has picked up where she left off this year by winning the all-around competition in both of the Bruins’ meets.
And on top of all that, this two-time All-American was a member of the 2008 Olympic team that won silver in Beijing.
This is a video clip of Peszek’s beam routine against Cal this past week:
And here’s a video clip of her floor routine against Utah on January 8. Please enjoy, Bruins!
