As an athlete and as a coach, few gymnasts have achieved the level of success attained by Debra Stark Clark. She was a member of the U.S. national team for five years, and in 1972 she represented her country in the Munich Olympic Games. During her hugely successful gymnastics career she competed in 49 states and 39 foreign countries.
Clark not only excelled as an athlete herself, but has helped others excel from the sidelines. For ten years, she helped lead the BYU Women’s Gymnastics team. Under her guidance, the Cougars had three consecutive top-ten finishes at the national level.
Debra received her Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education from Weber State University. She is currently working on her Masters in Education from SUU, and teaching at J. R. Smith Elementary in Heber City, Utah.
She has always maintained her ties to the Olympic movement and was a torchbearer for the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games and the 2002 Salt Lake Olympic Games.
Debra is married to Matt Clark and they have two children and two grandchildren.
