Grant Golding is enjoying the best season of his career in 2004. That's good news for Canada for the men's team event at the Olympics where it hopes to crack a top-eight finish. A four-time world championship team member, Golding won the all around title this year at both the Canadian championships and Olympic trials to gain a spot on his first Olympic team. He's also done well internationally with two medals at the Pacific Alliance Championships and the gold medal at an all around competition in Portugal.
"I approached this season by trying to not put so much pressure on myself and so far that's worked well," said Golding, whose best event is rings.
Golding started gymnastics at the age of four and competed for the first time at age seven. He began his career at Omega Gymnastics in B.C., and moved to Calgary in 2001 to work under coach Tony Smith.
