Olympic gymnast & UCLA legend Jamie Dantzscher will be inducted in the UCLA Hall of Fame Friday Sept 30th.
Jamie Dantzscher (Gymnastics, 2001-04)
Olympic bronze medalist Jamie Dantzscher cemented herself in Bruin lore the very first time she chalked up for a routine, scoring a perfect 10 on uneven bars right out of the gate in her collegiate debut. She is believed to be the first NCAA gymnast ever to score a perfect 10 on her first routine, and she went on to earn a school-record 28 10.0s in her career, including a national record seven in a row on floor exercise in 2002. Dantzscher led UCLA to three NCAA team titles (2001, 2003 and 2004) and won four NCAA individual titles of her own, including the 2002 all-around, vault and floor exercise crowns, and the 2003 uneven bars title. She also won the Pac-10 bars and floor titles in 2002 and the floor title in 2001 and was the 2002 Pac-10 Gymnast of the Year and a three-time Pac-10 All-Academic honoree. The 15-time All-American and 2004 AAI Award winner was named to the Pac-12 All-Century Team in the all-around and floor exercise.
