Black Gymnasts in History 2018: Olympic Coaches


Alan Hatch has travelled the world as a coach for several other countries and has instructed a long list of champion athletes on many levels. The journey that brought Annia Hatch to the U.S. National Team, World Championships, and then onto Olympic success after suffering a massive knees injury was masterful indeed!

Miles Avery was Paul Hamm’s coach during the Athens Olympics in 2004. Who can forget Paul Hamm’s stunning rise to all-around gold after a fall on his fourth event?!

One must remember that the coaches spend the same amount of hours in a gym as their athletes. Miles and Alan continue to serve our sport as great coaches, and we salute Miles Avery and Alan Hatch today for Black Gymnasts in History.
