"Kurt Thomas, who became the first US athlete to win a gymnastics gold medal at the world championships, died Friday. He was 64 and died from complications caused by a basilar stroke last month.

Wife Beckie Thomas confirmed the news to International Gymnast Magazine. “Yesterday I lost my universe, my best friend and my soul mate of 24 years. Kurt lived his life to the extreme, and I will be forever honored to be his wife.”

I have always been amazed at how well gymnasts can twist and turn and work the human body. I can recall watching his performances and many others in the Olympics.

Sad. You wouldn't think that someone in such excellent condition would die so relatively young. I love gymnastics too. It's amazing.
