Price Defends Title in Germany
STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford women’s gymnastics incoming freshman Elizabeth Price claimed her second consecutive title in Stuttgart, Germany, this past weekend at the 2013 DTB World Cup.
Price earned the all-around title, finishing with a 58.032 to place ahead of Romania’s Larisa Iordache (57.998) and Italy’s Vanessa Ferrari (56.866).
Price scored a competition-best 15.700 on vault, and had strong performances on uneven bars (14.466), floor exercise (14.366) and balance beam (13.500).
It was the second title Price earned at the event in Stuttgart after claiming the top spot in 2012. Price will compete this coming weekend at the World Cup in Glasgow, Scotland, where she will look to repeat as a champion after claiming the 2012 title.
Price signed a National Letter of Intent in mid-November to join the Cardinal in 2014-15. She boasts a wealth of national and international experience and was named an alternate to the U.S. Olympic team that won the gold medal in the 2012 London Olympics. It was the first gold-medal finish for the U.S. since 1996.
Price finished fourth at the 2012 Olympic Trials after hitting each of her eight routines.
Price joins a Stanford team that enters the 2014 season having competed in 10 NCAA Championships in 13 years, made 30 consecutive NCAA Regional appearances and accumulated 96 All-America honors (including 75 since 2002). The Cardinal is one of seven teams in the nation to make six Super Six appearances in the past 12 years (2002-13).
