Mitch Gaylord first thrilled the world in 1984 as he led the United States Olympic gymnastics team to its Gold Medal victory. In addition to being the first American Gymnast in history to receive a perfect “10,” Mitch went on to capture a Silver medal for Vaulting and two Bronze medals for Rings and Parallel Bars.

As the number one ranked gymnast in 1983 and 1984, Mitch invented two skills now named internationally after him. To this day, the Gaylord Flip and the Gaylord Two are considered two of the most difficult and spectacular feats in gymnastics.

After the Olympics, he was appointed to the President’s Council for Physical Fitness by Ronald Reagan. During this time, he fulfilled numerous speaking engagements, endorsements and appearances across the country. In 1986, Mitch made his acting debut in Columbia Pictures’ “American Anthem.” In 1988, he hosted his own television series “Fan Club,” and went on to appear m several commercial advertisements including Levi’s, Diet Coke, Nike, Vidal Sasson, Soloflex and Texaco, among others.

In 1995, in addition to being inducted into UCLA’s Hall of Fame, his talents were called upon by the producers of the blockbuster, “Batman Forever,” to be the stunt double for “Robin.” At the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta, Mitch served as a journalist/broadcaster providing human interest segments and expert commentary.

While not on the road speaking, Mitch is currently writing his first book, which should be available next year. He currently resides in Southern California with his beautiful wife and three children, whom he considers to be the true “10’s” in his life.
