No stranger to gymnastics, Olympic gold medalist Trent Dimas began training at age 6 in his hometown of Albuquerque, N.M. Dimas led the University of Nebraska to the 1990 NCAA Championships, won the all-around gold medal at the 1991 American Cup and earned first place in the vault at the 1992 U.S Gymnastics Championships. Further making history, Dimas soared to fame in one of the most electrifying competitions at the 1992 Olympic games in Barcelona when he became the only U.S. gymnast, male or female, awarded a gold medal.
