Video: UCLA's Olivia Courtney voted Pac-12 Gymnast of the Week
UCLA senior Olivia Courtney is the Pac-12 Gymnast of the Week after a head-turning performance in last Saturday's season opener against No. 1 Florida at Pauley Pavilion. Courtney won the vault with a 9.975, finished first on bars with a 9.9 and placed second on the floor exercise with a 9.9, making her the only competitor at the dual meet to finish with three scores of 9.9 or higher. Despite her efforts, the Bruins fell to the defending NCAA champions by 0.25.

Courtney recently chatted with Pac-12 Networks' Sarah Kezele about achieving the elusive perfect 10, awkward choreography and what the Bruins learned from their close loss to the Gators.
