INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., April 30, 2010 – On the heels of the 2010 NCAA Men’s Gymnastics Championships, “USA Gymnastics: Behind the Team presented by AT&T” shows fans what it’s like for those national team members who compete as both collegiate gymnasts and members of the U.S. National Team. Viewers get a look inside the University of Oklahoma and University of Illinois men’s gymnastics programs in the newest episode of “Behind the Team”, available now online only in the AT&T Fan Zone at

2009 NCAA all-around champion and world team member Steven Legendre and his U.S. national team and Sooner teammates Jake Dalton, Alex Naddour and Chris Brooks talk about the rich history of Oklahoma gymnastics and what it takes to win on both levels. 2009 NCAA parallel bars and horizontal bar champion Paul Ruggeri and Illinois teammate Tyler Mizoguchi discuss how they balance collegiate responsibilities and their first year on the national team.

This episode also features three members of the 2008 Olympic bronze-medal team: Jonathan Horton, the 2008 Olympic horizontal bar silver-medalist and 2009 U.S. national champion; Kevin Tan, current assistant coach at Pennsylvania State University; and Justin Spring, first-year associate head coach at the University of Illinois. These former collegiate competitors join 2009 world team member Tim McNeill in describing what collegiate gymnastics meant to them, both personally and for their gymnastics careers.

Fans will get a glimpse of the training facilities at OU and Illinois, witness the team atmosphere of these two great collegiate programs, and recap some of the action from the 2010 Winter Cup, where they competed to make the U.S. men’s national team.
