June 3, 2004

Nashville, TN - Former UCLA star Mohini Bhardwaj (1998-2001) stands in 10th place in the all-around after the first day of competition at the USA Gymnastics Championships. Bhardwaj totaled a 37.1 in the preliminary all-around/event finals session and also finished in a tie for second place on vault with a 9.525.

Bhardwaj, who is coached by UCLA assistant coach Chris Waller, started the competition strong with a 9.3 on floor exercise in rotation one. She moved to vault in rotation two and received her score of 9.525 on a double-twisting Yurchenko layout. On uneven bars, she scored an 8.9, and she closed the meet with a 9.375 on balance beam, good for 10th place.

Thursday's all-around preliminary score will be combined with Saturday's all-around final score to determine the all-around champions. Additionally, the top 14 all-around athletes will be named to the Senior National Team, and the top 12 invited to the U.S. Olympic Team Trials.
