Dominique Moceanu was a member of the first U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Team to ever win Olympic Gold, in 1996. Dominique remains the youngest Olympic gold medalist in U.S. gymnastics history at the age of 14. She is also youngest Senior U.S. National All-Around Champion in history (age 13), nine-time U.S. National Team Member, as well as back-to-back junior and senior All-Around national champion (1994–1995).

She’s been inducted into the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame and the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame with her 1996 teammates. She authored a New York Times Best Selling memoir called “Off Balance” and has co-authored a four-part children’s series called “The Go-for-Gold Gymnasts.”

She is now the owner of Creations by C&C Dominique Moceanu Signature Collection—a jewelry line she started in 2014. She lives in Cleveland, with her husband, Dr. Michael B. Canales, and two children, Carmen and Vincent.
