Mitch Gaylord

Mitch Gaylord
Program: "Raising the Bar"

Mitch Gaylord first thrilled the world in 1984 when he led the United States Olympic gymnastics team to its Gold Medal victory. In addition to being the first American Gymnast in history to score a Perfect "10," Mitch went on to capture a Silver medal for Vaulting and two Bronze medals for Rings and Parallel Bars. As the number one ranked gymnast in 1983 and 1984, Mitch invented two skills now named internationally after him. To this day, the Gaylord Flip and the Gaylord Two are considered among the most difficult and spectacular feats in gymnastics.

After the Olympics, Mitch was appointed to the President’s Council for Physical Fitness by President Reagan and was asked to return for a second term under President George Bush, Seniorfull bio

Attire: Casual sport/ business attire is appropriate for all functions, including the installation breakfast, evening meals, and educational sessions.  Slacks, golf shirts, pant suits or sundresses are preferred.  Be comfortable- the weather is warm but meeting rooms may be cool.  The Sunday evening reception is an outdoor event, so casual attire will be more comfortable, but Florida weather can be unpredictable, so be prepared for anything!
