Carly Patterson Biography
Former gymnast, Carly Patterson born February 4, 1988 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She is the 2004 Olympic All-Around Champion and a member of the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame. She currently lives in Allen, Texas.
Patterson was named the U.S. Junior National All-Around champion in 2002. She had previously received fourth place in 2000 and third place in 2001. By this time, she was largely considered the future of American gymnasts and a viable candidate for the 2004 Olympic All-Around title. From 2002 onward, she would continue to win nearly every All-Around event she entered. She was forced to sit out the 2003 U.S. National Championships, which would have been her first Nationals event as a senior, because of a broken elbow. At the 2003 World Gymnastics Championships in Anaheim, California, she earned the all-around silver medal the first time an American woman had won an all-around medal at that competition since 1994. She also helped her team to earn the team gold medal.
The Individual All-Around proved to be the much-anticipated battle between Carly and legend Svetlana Khorkina. After scoring lower than usual on the vault (9.375), Carly was stronger on her last three events, scoring 9.575 on uneven bars, 9.725 on the balance beam, and 9.712 on the floor exercise. She won the gold medal, an achievement that had only been attained by one other American gymnast, Mary Lou Retton, exactly twenty years before during the 1984 summer games. Carly became the first American woman to ever win the Olympic All-Around title in a fully attended Olympic Games.
On February 4, 2008, Carly signed a recording contract with MusicMind Records, a Chicago based Indie label. Her new single Temporary Life (Ordinary Girl) was released on March 25, 2008. Her debut album (title unknown) was scheduled for release August 5, 2008, coincidentally, the same week as the start of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. The CD did not release on the day it was supposed to. Carly is still working on it and it may come out soon.
