Mary Wright, coach and educator at Masters of Sport, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in gymnastics.
Ms. Wright has spent more than five decades coaching elite competitive gymnasts around the globe. The daughter of top New Zealand gymnast and diver Rita Marlow, she began competitive gymnastics training as a child before her mother recognized that her talents lay in coaching. By the age of 15, Ms. Wright was working with athletes at her mother’s gym, leading several to victories at the state and national level. Encouraged by her early success, Ms. Wright began coaching professionally in 1970.
Since 2015, Ms. Wright has focused on educating other coaches as the owner of Masters of Sport, and has traveled internationally to promote gymnastics and continuing education for coaches and trainers. She has been nominated multiple times for Coach of the Year and Choreographer of the Year, and has been inducted into the New Zealand Order of Merit and the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame for her contributions to the sport. Ms. Wright has published several gymnastics books and manuals, and recently completed another, titled “Tapestry of Gymnastics: Lessons Learned and Lessons Earned,” which is available at the Masters of Sport website, linked below. Outside the gym, Ms. Wright is active with canine rescue and adoption charities, and has provided her services pro bono to students at the University of Utah and young athletes with special needs.
