Where Team USA Gymnasts Come When No One Is Watching

The U.S. men's gymnastics team is a resident program at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. When athletes are not on the world's largest stage, they're at the OTC; living, training and working towards their dreams. Making the OTC "home" is Sherry Von Riesen. Officially the athlete services coordinator, most athletes know her as "mom." Gymnasts John Orozco and Paul Ruggeri talk about the importance of having a home away from home, and a mom away from mom.
