Mazeika to coach US men at London Olympics



INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The U.S. is not about to mess with what’s worked, picking Kevin Mazeika to coach the men’s gymnastics team at this summer’s London Olympics.

Mazeika was the U.S. coach for the last two Summer Games, and the Americans came away with team medals at both. The silver in Athens and bronze in Beijing was the first time the U.S. men have won medals at back-to-back Olympic Games. Mazeika was also the coach at the 2003 and 2001 worlds, when the U.S. won silver medals, and last fall, when the Americans won the bronze.

Mazeika also serves as the men’s national team coordinator, managing and supervising the training and development of the junior and senior men’s teams.
