Midwest Training and Ice Center's trampoline and tumbling coach, Kyle Bowen, has been named the U.S. Men's Trampoline coach for this summer's Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
"It's so exciting and such an honor to be selected as a coach for the Olympics," Bowen said. Bowen will be training Olympian Logan Dooley, who at 28-years old will be competing in the Olympics for his first time. He served as an alternate twice before.
Bowen's résumé speaks volumes. As a competitor, he was a U.S. Trampoline and Tumbling team member, a resident athlete at the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center, and competed in the 2008 Olympic Trials.
On the coaching side, Bowen has been a USA Team Coach at the World Age Group Championships and has developed athletes that have won many national, international, and World Age Group Competition titles. He was also named the 2014 USA Coach for the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China.
Bowen and Dooley will be training at Midwest Training and Ice Center leading up to their departure to go to Rio de Janerio. The trampoline events are scheduled for August 12 - 13.
