Marvin Kimble looks to Rio

Posted by William Van Aacken, Wednesday, August 21st, 2013 @ 9:49pm

  • … Now 17, he’s the best young male gymnast in the United States, an athlete whose ability invites comparisons to 2004 Olympic all-around gold medalist Paul Hamm.

    Kimble lives in Milwaukee and trains at Swiss Turners in West Allis, where Hamm and his twin brother, Morgan, trained.

    … Kimble will try to make his first senior national team this week at the 2013 U.S. Gymnastics Championships at the XL Center in Hartford, Conn.

    He will compete in the junior men’s session Thursday and if he finishes in the top six he will be eligible to compete in the senior session Saturday. The 15-man senior national team will be chosen at the end of the competition. …

    “That is the goal for this year,” said Andrei Kan, one of Kimble’s coaches at Swiss Turners and a 1996 Olympian for Belarus. “I see great potential for him to make the world championship team (in 2014) so it’s important for him to make the senior national team this year.

    “We are trying to get prepared for the 2016 Olympics. I believe he has a good chance.” …

Swiss Turners Rock at Junior Olympic Nationals 2011

Posted by William Van Aacken, Wednesday, August 21st, 2013 @ 9:23pm

  • It was an incredible experience to witness all of the success that Swiss Turners had this year at Nationals.  Long Beach, CA lived up to its name, and brought welcomed sunshine to us Wisconsin folks.

    The Swiss Level 10 team captured 1st place in Floor, Pommel, Rings, and Parallel Bars.    Overall, they took the 2nd place Club Team in the Nation for Level 10.  An incredible achievement!

    The Swiss Level 9 team performed well also, claiming 1st place in rings, and 6th place in the overall Club Team for the Nation.  

    Individually, many Swiss boys contributed to their teams' successes.  We had 5 boys rank in the top 36 all-around finals competition, with Marvin Kimble placing 3rd, Dmitri Belanovski placing 4th and Steven Jaciuk placing 17th, in their respective divisions.

    The last day of competition was the event finals and there were Swiss boys all over the place!  Perhaps a record 6 boys qualified for the Event finals by placing in the top 6 in the event.  Considering there were over 700 total competitors, this was a significant accomplishment.

    They all received medals for their competition in the event finals:

    Marvin Kimble - 1st in rings, 3rd on floor and pommel, 6th on pbars and vault
    Dmitri Belanovski - 1st in pbars, 4th on floor, 4th on pommel, 6th on rings
    Josiah Eng - 1st in rings
    Steven Jaciuk - 5th on high bar
    Paul Montague - 6th on rings
    Vitali Kan - 6th on floor
     

    All of their hard work during the year paid off!   Congratulations Swiss men!

Swiss Turners' Marvin Kimble Named to Junior National Team

Posted by William Van Aacken, Wednesday, August 21st, 2013 @ 9:16pm

  • Marvin Kimble continued to compete with excellence by taking 4th place at the 2011 USA Visa National Championships in Saint Paul, MN.  He placed 2nd on Floor, 4th on Pommel, 4th on Rings, 2nd on Vault, and 2nd on P-bars.  Even more remarkable in his first year of eligibility at the age 14-15 Junior level, his difficult routines and high marks granted him the opportunity to compete alongside the Seniors (college and elite level) on the final night of the men's competition.  Congratulations to Marvin on being named to the 2011-2012 Junior National Team!  He will be attend various training camps at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO  in preparation to represent the USA in International competitions.
