Kerri is a two-time Olympian and gold medalist. She was the youngest Olympian at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain at age 14. After four more years of hard work and training, she captured America’s spirit at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. As the team competition neared its end, Kerri was up last on vault. After shocking spectators by falling and injuring her ankle on her first vault, she managed to stick the landing on her second vault before collapsing in pain, helping to secure gold for the American team. It was a moment that landed Kerri on the front page of newspapers around the world and catapulted her into the spotlight. She was only eighteen years old.
