It’s DAY 4 of the Going for the Gold Gala Perfect 10 Countdown!
This year, our Spirit of Sport honoree is USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame member Bruno Klaus!
Bruno Klaus began gymnastics at the age of 12 in New York. He competed under Coach Bill Meade at Southern Illinois University. He was also a National Turner Junior and National AAU Junior Champion. Bruno was chosen to be a member of the 1966 U.S. State Department sponsored exhibition gymnastic team that traveled to Europe and Africa. Bruno founded, organized, developed, and served as president of the internationally famous International Gymnastics Camp in Pennsylvania.
Gymnasts have been attending the legendary International Gymnastics Camp for over 40 years. Through its programs and commitment to gymnastics, founder Bruno Klaus has given an unforgettable experience to athletes of all ages. Bruno and IGC have also been longtime supporters of Wendy Hilliard and the Wendy Hilliard Gymnastics Foundation. This year, the WHGF is honoring Bruno during its annual gala celebration.
Last year, Bruno was the recipient of the 2017 World Acrobatic Society’s Golden Achievement Award
