Former Buckeye standout and three-time Olympian Blaine Wilson will serve as a volunteer assistant coach for Ohio State again this season, his fifth year in that capacity for the squad. Wilson, who won five consecutive U.S. national championships, is training with the Ohio State squad in preparation for future national and international competitions. He was a member of the 2003 World Championships squad that earned the silver medal.
As a gymnast at Ohio State, Wilson (1994-97) claimed six NCAA national titles, including the all-around crown in 1996 and '97. He was named Big Ten Gymnast of the Year three times and won seven individual conference titles. Wilson won the Nissen-Emery Award in 1997.
