BIO

Paul Hamm is a two-time Olympian and four-time National Champion gymnast with over 15 major titles to his name.

Paul Hamm became the first American male to win the All-Around Gold medal in gymnastics in 2004.  He captured headlines around the world after suffering a fall on vault to pull off one of the greatest comebacks in Olympic gymnastics history with spectacular performances on the parallel bars and the high bar.  Paul also won the Silver in the Men’s high bar, and, along with his twin brother Morgan, led the U.S. Men’s team to the Silver medal in the team competition.

In 2003 Paul made history by becoming the first-ever U.S. man to win the World All-Around title in gymnastics.  The U.S. Men’s Team won Silver and Paul also shared the floor exercise Gold.

In August 2007, Paul and his brother Morgan competed for the first time since the 2004 Olympic Games to begin their journey to compete in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.  Though Paul was named to the 2008 US Olympic team, he was forced to withdraw prior to the Games due to injury.

Paul is the son of Sandy and Cecily Hamm, and has a twin brother, Morgan who was also on the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Teams.  The brothers made history in 2000 as they became the first twins ever to compete in the same Olympic Games in gymnastics.

The twins’ older sister Betsy is a former USA Gymnastics National Team member and was the NCAA’s National Beam Champion in 1998 and a 7-time All-American while competing for the University of Florida.  Their father was an All-American springboard diver.

Paul graduated from The Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business in June 2007, earning a degree in Accounting with a 3.9 overall GPA.  He spent two years working for Breakwater Capital, LLC.

In 2016 Paul was inducted into the United States Gymnastics Hall of Fame. Paul is now coaching men’s gymnastics in Chicago, IL.
