Kimberly Lynn Zmeskal (Burdette)

Performed at the 1992 Olympics, retired, then un-retired and almost made the 2000 team!
Recognized for her middle tumbling pass on floor which consisted of a round-off, three consecutive whip-backs, back-handspring, into a double-back in the tucked position (sometimes with four whips into double-back). Another trademark was the way she would flare her arms out during full-twisting elements, most notably on her full-twisting Yurchenko vault.
Another signature move was the reverse plange with one bent leg, which was her opening move on the balance beam.
Now runs her own gym in Texas.
Married with three children.
