Chellsie Memmel

Chellisie Memmel staged an extraordinary return to elite gymnastics in 2021 after a nine-year retirement. The Olympic silver medalist and mom of two children competed in 2021 at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships and GK U.S. Classic.

Memmel won an Olympic silver medal in 2008 in the team competition. At the 2006 World Championships, Memmel helped her team earn the silver medal.

In 2005, at World Championships, Memmel became the first U.S. woman to win the all-around gold medal since 1994 when Shannon Miller won her second straight title. She also finished second in both the uneven bars and balance beam. Memmel tied for USA Gymnastics Women's Athlete of the Year in 2005.

Memmel burst into the spotlight in 2003 when she was named to the Pan American Games team and won five medals, including team and all-around gold. This was the first time the USA had ever won gold in teams. An alternate to the 2003 World Championships Team, she was cast into the lineup after injuries and illness of three team members.
