Trent Dimas! Awww I love Trent. After Shannon Miller’s perfect vault in AA, this my favorite Barcelona moment. I just love the celebration at the end. Peter Vidmar is the commentator here, right? I loved him as commentator. “I kinda want to rip my head-set off and jump up and down.” LOL
Trent performed a nearly flawless high bar routine which he received a 9.875 for and captured the gold medal, becoming the first Hispanic-American to win an Olympic medal, the first gold medal won by an American gymnast—male or female, in a non-boycotted Olympics in 60 years, and the only gold medal awarded to an American gymnast in Barcelona. Trent beat all odds by edging the Unified Russian team for the high bar medal, despite their win on 4 other events.
