The wonderful new development about the Olympic Games is that almost every participant looks to commemorate the experience with colorful and inventive body art. Just on “New 2 Tats”, alone, we have featured Olympians like Stephanie Rice, Ronda Rousey, Missy Franklin and Federica Pelligrini (just to name a few). Jordyn Wieber, of the Gold Medal winning U.S. Women’s Gymnastics team is the latest to join that club.
The 2012 Games in London proved to be one of the most enormously successful performances ever for the U.S. in women’s gymnastics. In addition to Gabby Douglas achieving the individual all-around Gold Medal, Gabby, Jordyn and the rest of their teammates pulled down the team Gold Medal as well.
Before she achieved Gold Medal greatness, the Michigan-born Wieber started competing in high-level competition on the Juniors circuit in 2009, winning Gold Medals at the American Cup and Pacific Rim Championships. In 2011, she progressed the Seniors circuit and started competing alongside her future Olympic teammates, securing many more Gold Medals.
After the success in London, Jordyn took time off to heal from a stress fracture injury and she has started college at UCLA, where she serves as the manager of their gymnastics team.
The Olympic Rings and the city of the Games is one of the most common tattoo designs that athletes get (Stephanie Rice has both Beijing and London commemorated on her inner right bicep). Jordyn just recently added the Olympic Ring design, along with a script design of London, on her left wrist. It’s a very cute tattoo and looks good on her.
