Alyssa Erin Beckerman (born January 23, 1981, in Long Branch, New Jersey) is an American gymnast and student.

Biography[edit]

Beckerman was a member of the United States National Gymnastics Team from 1997 to 2000. Her highest honor was making the 1999 World Gymnastics Championships although she was unable to compete due to a wrist injury. She was named an alternate member of the 2000 US Olympic team, but was unable to compete because Tasha Schwikert (the other alternate member) was instead selected in place of an injured Morgan White. Beckerman competed on the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) intercollegiate gymnastics team from 2001 to 2003 while pursuing a degree in sociology.

Beckerman is best known for her exquisite, clean gymnastics, impeccably long and smooth legs, and her tremendous dance ability. While not a very powerful gymnast, her floor exercise routines were dramatic and well received by judges. Beckerman's ability to pirouette was largely unmatched by other American gymnasts. Her triple pirouette on the floor exercise was well performed, as well as her pirouette with leg horizontal to the floor on the balance beam.

Beckerman's strongest events were the uneven bars and the balance beam.
