USA Gymnastics, the national governing body for the sport of gymnastics in the U.S., announced that 1995 World Championships Team Coach and 1996 Olympic Team Coach Peter Kormann was hired as the National Men’s Program Coordinator effective June 1.


Kormann’s role is to coordinate the efforts of the U.S. elite athletes and coaches across the country. He will assist with the development of individual training plans and goals for the athletes and coaches, as well as for the U.S. team at major national and international events. He will oversee the visitation and elite clinician programs. He will also organize national team training camps and final preparation camps for major international events.

Kormann was named by the Men’s Program Committee as Head Coach of the 1997 World Championships Team in early 1996. Kormann will continue to lead the team at the World Championships in Lausanne, Switzerland, August 31-September 7.
USA Gymnastics Men’s Program Director Ron Galimore said, “We’re excited about having Peter on board and feel as though we can continue our progress in advancing men’s gymnastics internationally which started in 1995 when Peter was the World Championships Team Coach and continued in 1996 when Peter accepted the Olympic Team Coach position.”
Kormann resigned from Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, to take the position with USA Gymnastics.
“After 20 years of coaching in collegiate gymnastics I felt it was time to move on and try some other things,” said Kormann. “I’m looking forward to working with USA Gymnastics.”
Kormann will continue to reside in Columbus, Ohio, and travel extensively on behalf of USA Gymnastics.
