As one of the world’s top gymnasts, Chellsie Memmel is a six-time World Championship medalist and was part of the silver medal-winning team at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Chellsie emerged as one of America’s brightest talents in 2003 when she was named to the 2003 Pan American Games team and won five medals, including Team gold and individual All-Around gold. She flew straight from the Pan Am Games to the World Championships and won the uneven bars title and led the team to its first ever Team gold medal at a World Championships. At the 2005 World Championships, she became the first U.S. woman to win the All-Around gold medal since 1994.
Chellsie is known for her never-give-up attitude, determination, perseverance, and true mental and physical strength, and throughout her career has been considered one of the fiercest competitors in the sport. She takes great pride in being a good role model and setting a good example for others.
Chellsie was a member of the 2008 Olympic Gymnastics Team in Beijing, China. She fought through a severe injury (a broken foot) to help the team win a silver medal. Following the 2008 Olympics she took time off from her gymnastics career to concentrate on coaching. In 2011 Chellsie announced she would begin training with the intent of making the 2012 Olympic team. She competed for the first time since the 2008 Beijing Olympics at the 2011 CoverGirl U.S. Classic where she won the all-around Silver medal.
Chellsie proved she was well on her way to claiming her spot as one of the top female gymnasts in the world with a phenomenal performance at the 2011 Visa U.S. National Championships. As a result, she was named to the 2011 U.S. National Team. Though she was named to the 2011 Pan American team, she was ultimately forced to withdraw due to injuries. Determined as ever, she continued her comeback for the 2012 Olympic Team and competed in a compulsory requirement at the 2012 U.S. Classic, but was ultimately forced to withdraw from the 2012 U.S. National Championships due to injury. Chellsie announced her retirement from an award-filled competitive gymnastics career in November 2012, but not before a thrilling performance on the post-Olympic Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions, a 40-city nationwide gymnastics spectacular show.
Following a solid performance at the 2013 Pro Gymnastics Challenge, Chellsie again got the “tumble bug” and began to “play around” in the gymnastics discipline of power tumbling in. In true Memmel fashion, she shocked the country when she shared in July that she is currently training with the intent of making the U.S. Tumbling and Trampoline Team for the 2013-2014 season and hopes to again represent her country at the World Championships. She will be posting photos and videos on her Facebook page to chronicle her new adventure.
Outside of training she continues to be heavily involved in gymnastics and has a passion for children’s literacy, & health and fitness, especially when it comes to getting kids involved in a healthy, active, happy lifestyle.
She serves as a judge for national and international gymnastics competitions, and in addition to training and coaching, will pursue college options early next year.
Chellsie married her longtime boyfriend, Kory Maier, in June of 2013. Her parents, Andy and Jeanelle- both of whom were All-American gymnasts- own M&M Gymnastics where she trained and was coached by her father.
