The newly appointed high-performance team coordinator for the embattled USA Gymnastics women's elite program pulled Hurd aside and put things in perspective. "He was like, 'It's OK because now is not your peak time anyways,'" Hurd said. "That was the exact mind...Keep on reading: Amid turmoil, USA Gymnastics takes small steps forward.....»»
