Paul Hamm (USA)

2004 Olympic All-Around Champion from the United States, Paul Hamm, has come out of retirement, quit his job in the finance industry, returned to Wisconsin and announced his comeback to competitive elite men’s gymnastics.

The announcement, which broke yesterday over on the International Gymnast Magazine forum, as well as on the Inside Gymnastics Magazine website, has been met largely with happiness and shows of support for the comeback. Hamm mentioned to International Gymnast magazine that a small part of the inspiration for his comeback is that he feels his win in Athens six years ago is still tainted and he wants to set that right.
