NJ Olympians: Gymnast Steven Gluckstein
Atlantic Highlands native Steven Gluckstein will be competing in his first Olympics in London. Gluckstein used to practice tae kwon do until the school he would take lessons with shut down. After that, his mother signed him up for gymnastics lessons and the rest is history.
After bursting onto the trampoline and tumbling scene in 2001, the Rutgers University product has won the U.S. trampoline championship four times.
Gluckstein beat out his younger brother for a spot on the Olympic team. Trampolining became an Olympic sport back in 2000.
OLYMPIC UPDATE: Gluckstein fell off the trampoline during his second routine during the medal round and finished off the medal stand. Gluckstein and his brother hope to make it to the 2016 Olympic games.
