Hagerty´s training for Champions Trophy

May 27, 2009

In five days, the first competition of the Champions Trophy will be held in Frankfurt, Germany. Olympian Joseph Hagerty of the USA is one of eight gymnasts, who compete in the all-around for a lot of prize money.

Anne Phillips of Gymnastike shows us in the Workout Wednesday Hagerty´s great form in training. He´s in a very good shape: “These routines, I do now, are very easy for me, cause I´ve done them four years for the Olympics. I´m very consistent with them.”

His technical advice is clear and helpful – it works out.
