Alicia Sacramone

Alicia Sacramone is one of the best examples of a gymnast benefiting from the “specialist” role that emerged out of rule changes in the mid-1990s. Alicia’s career was noteworthy for both her longevity and win total. She attended nearly every major event from 2005-2011 with the only exception being the 2009 World Championships. At the time of the 2011 World Championships she had more medals at the World Championships than any other gymnast in American history, a distinction that has since been surpassed.
