Bela and Martha Karolyi's ranch now has the U.S. Olympic Committee's seal of approval.
The ranch, site of monthly training camps for the U.S. women's gymnastics team since 2000, was designated an Olympic Training Site on Wednesday. It will continue to be the official training site for the women, and also will house USA Gymnastics' rhythmic, trampoline and tumbling, and acrobatic programs.
"Having this facility allows us to do more to start drilling down deeper into the athlete pipeline," USA Gymnastics president Steve Penny said. "It also gives our other disciplines a place to call home, which they haven't had. When we met with the coaches and the people with trampoline and rhythmic and acro, every time they'd try to have a camp, they were intruding on someone else's space. Now they have their own space."
