    “The thought of being inducted into the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame makes me speechless,” Kupets told “It was a joy to learn skills as a gymnast, a chance of a lifetime to compete and medal at the Olympics, and a blessing to be part of four NCAA championship teams at the University of Georgia. To be recognized among all of the greats in USA Gymnastics history is more than I could ever imagine for doing what I loved.”

    A member of the 2004 Olympic team, Kupets helped lead the U.S. to a silver medal in Athens, Greece, and she also claimed the bronze medal on the uneven bars. She was also a member of the 2003 gold medal U.S. World Championships team, and in 2008 she was inducted into the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame as a member of that 2003 team.

    Kupets was a member of four NCAA Championship teams from 2006-09. As a senior in 2009, she led Georgia to its fifth straight NCAA Championship, and she won the all-around, bars, beam and floor individual competitions. She became the first gymnast to win a national title in all four events and received five first team All-America honors, making a total of 15 for her career, the maximum for only competing three years.

    “This is a well-deserved honor for Courtney,” former UGA coach Suzanne Yoculan told “She had a phenomenal gymnastics career at every level, not only reaching the pinnacle of success as a world champion and Olympian, but also by being the most successful collegiate gymnast ever. To me, her respect for others, her perseverance and her humility are her biggest strengths. Courtney continues to be a great ambassador for the University of Georgia and for gymnastics, and I look forward to being there for her induction on Friday.”

    Kupets set the NCAA record with nine individual championships and was the 2009 SEC Athlete of the Year, as well as the AAI National, NCAA Southeast Regional and SEC Gymnast of the Year. Kupets became the third Gym Dog ever to record a 10.0 in all four events, and she had seven 10.0s in 2009, including three at the NCAAs. She was awarded the Honda-Broderick Cup in 2009 as the nation’s top female collegiate athlete.
