As an adventurous four-year-old, Sarah Curtis used to try out her own flips and tumbles on the sidelines of her older sister's gymnastics practices.
"Eventually, my mom decided it'd be safer to put me in the sport rather than me doing it on the side," Curtis said with a laugh.

After thriving in one-arm routine, Baldus-Strauss joins regular event lineup

BY COLT ROSENSWEIG

For most athletes, getting hurt means sitting out.
But for freshman Ben Baldus-Strauss, it meant learning to do floor exercise on just one good arm.
After sustaining a mysterious injury on the pommel horse in November, Baldus-Strauss's right wrist was useless for more than a month. Even with multiple X-rays and an MRI, doctors weren't sure what was wrong and eventually just immobilized the wrist. Baldus-Strauss, normally an all-arounder, couldn't practice pommel horse, rings, parallel bars or high bar, all of which require both arms for support.

In that span, Michigan gymnasts have earned six individual event titles at nationals to Georgia's 29.
So, understandably, this weekend's matchup against No. 1 Georgia, the three-time defending national champion, will be a daunting task for the Wolverines. Michigan has beaten the Gym Dogs just once in 20 tries, with its lone victory coming in 2002.

After strong showing, men's gym team heads to Champaign

BY COLT ROSENSWEIG

It's time to take this show on the road.
After posting its highest score of the season at home last Sunday against No. 1 Stanford, the fifth-ranked Michigan men's gymnastics team will face No. 6 Illinois tomorrow in Champaign.
Huff Hall will be a stark contrast to familiar Cliff Keen Arena for the Wolverines, so Michigan coach Kurt Golder briefed his gymnasts on the atmosphere they'll likely face.
