In 2006, Justin Spring completed one of the best seasons in the history of Illinois gymnastics. Aside from two NCAA titles and five All-America honors, he received the George Nissen-Emery Award that year, given to the top senior male gymnast in the country. He was also 2006 Big Ten Gymnast of the Year. A Justin Spring appearance also helped the Illini to runner-up finishes at the NCAA and Big Ten Championships. A year after, he placed third in the Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro.
In total, Spring has four NCAA championships, with a pair on high bar and parallel bars, six Big Ten Gymnast of the Week laurels, three Inside Gymnastics’ NCAA Gymnast of the Week honors, and was named to the All-Big Ten first team three times. He also received the Dike Eddleman Athlete of the Year award twice, an award given to Illinois’ top male and female athlete. Spring left his college team a 12-time All-American and as the holder of the Illinois record on the floor exercise, vault, parallel bars, and high bar.
In June 2008, Spring was named to the US Olympic Gymnastic team. His brilliant performance on the vault, parallel bars, high bar, and the floor exercise contributed to the US Team’s bronze medal.
