Morgan Hamm

Morgan Carl Hamm is an American artistic gymnast. He represented the United States at the 2000 Summer Olympics and at the 2004 Summer Olympics. At the 2004 Olympics, he won the silver medal in the team competition. He was a member of the silver-medal winning team at the 2003 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships. Hamm was named to the 2008 Summer Olympic team, but withdrew from it due to injury.

Hamm is the son of Sandy and Cecily Hamm. In addition to his twin brother, Paul Hamm, his older sister, Elizabeth (Betsy), is a former member of USA Gymnastics Senior National Team. She competed for the University of Florida, where she became the NCAA’s national balance beam champion in 1998 and was a seven-time All American. His father was an All-American springboard diver.

He competed at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney while aged 17, and the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, alongside his twin brother Paul, helping the American team win the silver medal in the team gymnastics competition. Morgan’s contribution to this victory was vital as he performed on four of the six pieces and was the highest scorer for the team on vault and high bar. He also competed in floor and high bar finals, and only a tie-breaker kept him from taking bronze on the latter event. Morgan was a member of the US team at the 2003 World Championships, where he helped earn a silver medal.
