Who is Kimberly Zmeskal from Texas Dreams Gymnastics?

At March of 2014, Zmeskal performed in Jesolo. Kimberly Lynn Zmeskal Burdette (born February 6, 1976) is a former American artistic gymnast who won a national title, a global title, and an Olympic bronze medal. She is a gymnastics coach and co-owner of Texas Dreams Gymnastics in Coppell, Texas, with her husband, Chris Burdette.

Zmeskal was born in San Antonio but grew up in Horseshoe Bay Beach Club in Rockport, Texas. Her mother, Pam, is a physical therapist and her father, Bill, is a financial manager for Southwest Airlines.

She started training in gymnastics at the age of 4 under Ron Flesher at Texas Dreams Gymnastics in Coppell, Texas. At the time, it was one of only two female-specific gymnastics clubs in the United States. The other club was located in Toronto, Canada. Together, they are known as the "Texas Dream Team."

Under Flesher's guidance, she went on to become one of the best female artistic gymnasts in the world. In 1994, when Zmeskal was just 16 years old, she became the first American to win a gold medal in the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She added another gold medal four years later in Beijing, China. Zmeskal also has two silver medals from the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and 2004 Athens Olympics respectively.

What happened to Texas Dreams Gymnastics?

Following the release of "Athlete A," Texas Dreams Gymnastics has become the latest facility to face abuse claims. Former Dreams gymnast Ashton Kim was the first to accuse the gym, especially owners and head trainers Kim Zmeskal-Burdette and Chris Burdette, of abuse. She said they would hit her with belts and rollators (a type of walker) as well as withhold food from her to force her to train further. Last month, two more former athletes came forward with allegations of abuse against the gym.

In a statement, Zmeskal-Burdette denied all allegations of abuse and said she was "shocked" by them. He added that he and his wife were looking into getting help for their mental health issues and might have to close down the gym. Chris Burdette also denied any involvement in any abuse at the gym and said he was "disappointed" by the accusations.

Earlier this year, three other gyms -- including one in California -- faced similar accusations. Authorities investigated but did not charge anyone with a crime.

Texas Dreams was founded in 2002 and had been based in Humble until 2013 when it moved its operations to Austin. The couple had been running the gym together before Kim Zmeskal-Burdette took over as head trainer in 2015.
