Black Gymnasts in History: Corrinne Wright

Read our profile of Corrinne from 2016: 

I have known Corrinne for some time. She has always been so gracious and, of course, that great smile!

There was so much I did not know – but I think that is her personality.

I always knew she was a great gymnast – and that was fun, we always had such great respect for each other’s gymnastics.

Corrinne was the first Black female to win the NCAA All-Around Gymnastics Championships!

She has had a great career on the national team- then in the NCAA and now in coaching.

Somewhere she found the time to go to law school, too!
