Olympic medalist makes visit to West Virginia memorable

Monday December 12, 2005

Carly Patterson doesn't know whether she'll be spending her summer two years from now in China.

But she did spend part of her winter this year in West Virginia.

Patterson, the 2004 Olympic gold medal winner in the individual all-around competition in Athens, was on hand at the Mavericks Gymnastics Club's Carly Patterson Big Dog Invitational held at Riverside High School this weekend.

Patterson, who is 17 years old, is undecided about whether or not she will compete in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China.

She will, however, continue to train for shows and appearances.

Due to a grueling schedule of training 37 hours a week, Patterson never really had the life of a normal teenager.

"I didn't go to public school and I didn't get to do the kinds of things they do," she said. "I had practice at 8 o'clock in the morning on Saturdays, so it's not like I could stay out and have slumber parties with my friends."

However, Patterson knew what she was giving up when she devoted herself to gymnastics.

"I knew I would get a chance to do all of that stuff now and later on down the road," she said.

Instead, she devoted herself to gymnastics. From her hometown of Baton Rouge, La., Patterson won the 1999 Louisiana state championship before taking her talent to the national stage by winning the silver medal on balance beam and taking fourth in the all-around at her first US National Championship meet.

Her career really took off in 2003, when she placed second in the all-around at the World Championships, helping the U.S. to its first ever team gold medal.

Then, just a year later, she became the Olympic all-around champion.

Patterson said that her mom and her coaches have been her main support system throughout her career. And although Patterson may be a role model to many aspiring gymnasts, she has two specific role models of her own -- Dominique Dawes of the 1996 Olympic Team and Fairmont native, Mary Lou Retton, the individual all-around gold medal winner of the 1984 Olympics.

Now, she's inspiring a few gymnasts, too.

Ten year old Janelle McClellan of Charleston was thrilled to meet Patterson and have her picture taken with her. Her mother, Jennifer McClellan, was impressed that Patterson spent so much time with the kids.

"She (Patterson) was very friendly and each kid got their picture with her and she signed all of their pictures. It's been a very nice meet," McClellan said.

New Carly Interview
Carly was interviewed a few days ago, promoting her appearance at Riverside HS this weekend. Not a whole lot new, she continues to talk about the album. It appears Carly will be going to LA to record some demos.

Full Article/ Interview:

Carly Patterson is a typical high school senior. The 17-year-old from Allen, Texas, enjoys hanging with her friends at Starbucks, watching movies all day and spending time with her younger sister Jordan, with whom she is very close. She even has a midnight curfew like many other teens.

There is one little thing, though, that separates her from other teenage girls she’s the 2004 Olympic All-Around Champion in women’s individual gymnastics.

Patterson will be in town Dec. 9-11 for Maverick Gymnastics Club’s Carly Patterson Big Dog Invitational (see sidebar), which will be held at Riverside High School. In a recent telephone interview, she offered some advice for next weekend’s competitors and for athletes in general. “Just listen to your coach, make sure you’re always having fun and give it 110 percent every day,” she said.

She has certainly given it her all in her career. At last year’s Olympics in Athens, Greece, Patterson became only the second American woman ever to win the All-Around title. (Fairmont native Mary Lou Retton was the first.) A top-level competitor who holds many world titles, she also won the silver medal on balance beam and was part of the silver-medal-winning women’s team.

The payoff didn’t come without work, though. To prepare for the Olympics, Patterson and her teammates trained 37 hours a week. Plus, Patterson prepared in other ways. She indulged in her pre-meet ritual of eating eggs before a competition and she got rid of her nerves by relaxing and watching television.

Patterson first discovered gymnastics at a cousin’s birthday party, which was held at a local gym. Her constant tumbling around the house after that party concerned her mother Natalie.

“After three months, I still wouldn’t stop [tumbling], and she was scared I was going to hurt myself so she put me in [gymnastics],” she said.

The rest is history. In 2002, Patterson became the Junior National Champion, and in both 2003 and 2004, she was the Visa American Cup Champion. In 2004, she became the Senior National Co-Champion, sharing the title with fellow Olympian Courtney Kupets.

She even has a trick named after her. Her signature balance beam dismount (an Arabian double front) was officially named the Patterson at the 2003 World Championships. She’s the only person in the world who can complete it.

Since the Olympics, Patterson has been having a blast, touring and making various media appearances. So far, she’s mingled with celebrities like Nick Lachey and LL Cool J and made appearances at ceremonies like the MTV Video Music Awards. She has also appeared on several talk shows, including “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

“Ellen was my favorite,” she said.

Aside from gymnastics, Patterson has another passion: singing. In fact, she is thinking of making music a more serious hobby. Soon, she will be going to Los Angeles to record some demos. Even though she sings pop-rock, she also loves listening to alternative and punk rock music.

Patterson is also focused on academics. She attends Spring Creek Academy, a high school designed to help students involved in sports or the arts work around their schedules, and she hopes to go to college somewhere in Texas to become a dental hygienist.

However, don’t look for her on her college’s gymnastics team. “I went professional in 2003 after [the World Championships], so I’m not eligible.”

In fact, she’s not even sure whether she’ll compete in another Olympics. “I’m kind of busy with school and other stuff right now, so I haven’t quite decided.”

Carly Screen Saver
I've made a fairly simple Carly screen saver. It's nothing special but it's still pretty good. I could only use HQ pictures so some of the most recent pictures aren't on here. Some from Athens, some from other events. It includes 43 images. I will probably make another soon once I get some more pictures.

Hear Carly Singing
Love her or hate her, since we first learned Carly has going into music several months ago, people have wanted to hear her sing. In an interview done Sunday, Carly gave a small sample of "Damaged". Feel free to post what you think in the comments section. The entire interview should be up today or tomorrow.

Download

Also, I found the video up at PutFile.com . In WMV format.

Update: I'm going to post what I have of the interview shortly. The rest should be up this afternoon. It's cool to see how many gymnastics and music sites and places this is being seen at. Hopefully this will begin to put Carly in the music scene.
