Athens Olympics champ Carly Patterson will be a member of the 2009 USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame class.
The 2004 Olympic all-around champion who lives in Allen won't have to travel far to attend the summer ceremony to be held in Dallas.
"We are proud to recognize the 2009 inductees for their accomplishments and contributions to gymnastics," said Steve Penny, president of USA Gymnastics. "The rich history of USA Gymnastics is reflected by those inducted into this prestigious group. Congratulations to each and every one of our honorees."
The 2009 USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame luncheon and induction ceremony is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 14, as part of the USA Gymnastics National Congress and Trade Show in Dallas.
