Pual Hamm is a gymnast who has competed for a long time.  He was in the 2000 and 2004 Olympics and attempted comebacks in 2008 and 2012.  He is best known for winning the men’s All Around title at the 2004 Athens Olympics.  His high bar performances showed strength, coordination, and daring.  Here is a video of one of them.  Even though he floundered on the vault in Athens, his high bar performance edged him into the winning position.


Paul is truly one of the USA’s gymnastics Olympics heroes!
