Tasha  — now she is one accomplished gymnast! On so many levels!

Olympics, NCAA, USA, World Championships!

Determination and fortitude are two words that describe her career.

I have known her first coach, Cassie Rice, for years – Cassie put her on the international scene.

And then Valorie Kondos Field, her coach at UCLA – Valorie really brings out the personality in her gymnasts.

They are both standouts for the Pac 12- see below.

It is a thrill to profile these great athletes and today we salute Tasha Schwikert for Black Gymnasts in History.
