There's always one guy whose the top gymnast in a country. The guy usually is around for a decade or so. No one has accomplished what he has, no one holds the titles he does. 5 Time US National Champion, 4 Time American Cup Champion, 2 Time US Olympian. All in a row. Name one other person who holds those titles. There is only one. Blaine Carew Wilson, nickname BC by his father.
Born August 3, 1974 in Columbus, Ohio, Blaine started out as a soccer player, and not soon after switched to gymnastics. Blaine was 5 years old when he first walked into a gym in 1979. 22 years later, he is dominating the sport. In 1995 Blaine won his first national title. Come 1996 he won it again, and held it going into the 1996 Olympics. Although the Olympics didn't go as planned for Blaine. He placed 5th with the US Team, 10th All Around, and 7th on the Rings. Blaine decided to stick around another 4 years. Who knew what Sydney would bring.
At the 1997 World Championships the US Team placed 6th as a team. Blaine was once again National Champion heading into the competition. 1998, Blaine domained the Nationals yet again. In 1999 Blaine once again held the title of US National Champion heading into the World Championships. This time he was determined for a medal. A TV time out got his head out of focaus and he fell. Blaine placed the highest a US Man had ever placed in World or Olympic Competition. 4th, just .001 out of a medal. With Sydney just around the cornor, Blaine needed to get focused. At the 2000 National Championships, Blaine dominated the field. Taking his 5th National Title in a row! He automatically made the Olympic team no matter how good or bad he did at Trials. In Sydney things didn't seem exactly right from the start. The floor mat was harder to tumble on and gave many of the gymnasts problems. In Team prelims, things didn't go quite right on Pommel horse, John Rothelisburger Dislocating a finger in warmups and they didn't all pull off the best routines.
On Parallel Bars, Blaine totally fell apart, and on High Bar he met the mat as well. Team finals weren't the best for the guys either, They finished up the competition in 5th Place. Blaine had some problems as well in the All Around. Finishing 6th After scoring a 7.9 on Pommel Horse. He also had a shot at Vault in Event Finals, but came to Sydney with one 10.00 Vault and a 9.60 Vault. He fell on his 10.00 vault and almost perfectally nailed his second one. Yetagain, missing the medals.
After Sydney, Blaine took some time off to tour, and finally decided that he was gonna stick around till 2004. He knew USA Gymnastics needed him. He moved out of the Olympic Training Center and back to Ohio State, where he is living with his sister, Amy, and finishing up his phsycology degree. On March 28th, 2001, Blaine tied the knot. He got married to his fiancee, Makare Desilets, at Justice of the Peace in Columbus, OH.
While continuing on his training, Blaine ran into another small "rip" in the way. He tore his rotator cuff about a week before the 2001 Gym Jam. He is out for the rest of the year, and according to Blaine he will be back and ready to compete in around a year! He is continuing to work his shoulder back and getting ready to compete
