Terin Humphrey scores a 9.300 on her only event of the day as the leadoff gymnast on the floor exercise for team USA at the 2003 World Championships, contributing to USA’s first World Team title for WAG. Initially on the team as first alternate before being bumped down to second alternate in favor of Chellsie Memmel, a string of injuries and illness that plagued the team allowed Terin to step in and gave her a chance to prove her worth to the team. Today, Terin is one of three women on the selection committee and serves as the athlete representative, and helped choose the U.S. Olympic Gymnastics teams for 2012 and 2016.  (x)
