Earlier today, the University of California, Berkeley announced its decision to reinstate women’s gymnastics, along with women’s lacrosse and men’s rugby. Unfortunately, they decided not to reinstate men’s gymnastics or baseball.

The links to the two official statements released by UC Berkeley are below.

The gymnastics family’s effort to help both programs has been inspiring. The USA Gymnastics community quickly stepped up ever since hearing that men’s gymnastics was in jeopardy. We want to thank all of you for your support and cooperation during this time, and congratulate the women’s program for being reinstated.
