On Wednesday, July 28 at the John Wooden Center on the UCLA campus, 1984 Olympic gold medalist and former UCLA star Mitch Gaylord, along with fellow gold medalist Bart Conner, will join IOC Vice President Anita DeFrantz in proclaiming National Gymnastics Day in the city of Los Angeles. They will be joined by other members of the 1984 Olympic Team as they commemorate the 15th anniversary of men's team Olympic gold medal, won at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion.

Also joining the festivities will be 1996 Olympian and former Bruin Chainey Umphrey, 1992 Olympian Betty Okino and 2000 Olympic hopeful Vanessa Atler.
