ATHENS, GA (CBS46) -

Courtney Kupets Carter, a former University of Georgia gymnast, has been named the new head gymnastic coach.

“Courtney was a remarkable gymnast and leader on a team that won four national championships,” said McGarity.  “She knows the heritage of our program and what it takes to compete at the highest levels. While she comes with national and international competition experience and a national name, she also brings a passion for her sport, her University, the Georgia gymnastics program, and a commitment to the ‘G.’”  

Kupets Carter was a member of the 2004 Olympic team, helping lead the U.S. to a silver medal in Athens, Greece, and also claiming the bronze medal on the uneven bars. In addition, she was a member of the 2003 gold medal U.S. World Championships team.

She became the first gymnast to win a national title in every event and received five First Team All-America honors. 

Kupets Carter has been working as an SEC Network gymnastics analyst since 2015 and also teaching at the Oconee Gymnastics Club this past year.

She is expecting her second child in July with husband Chris Carter.
