Michigan Gymnastics

Blue closes out season against Ohio State

BY COLT ROSENSWEIG

Sixty years ago, the Michigan men's gymnastics team regained varsity status under Newt Loken.
The energetic 89-year-old coach, who guided the Wolverines to 12 Big Ten titles and two national championships in 36 seasons, hasn't missed a home meet since, even though he retired in 1983.
"I remember him being to pretty much every meet, but I never realized that he's been to every one," senior Dan Rais said. "It's pretty cool to know that someone is so dedicated to our sport."

For the first time this season, Jaclyn Kramer didn't just put on her uniform and support her teammates with cheers and hugs on the sidelines.

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.
