Profession: Retired artistic gymnast



Madison Taylor Kocian is an American retired artistic gymnast. On the uneven bars, she is one of four 2015 World co-champions and the 2016 Olympic silver medalist.

She was part of the gold medal-winning team dubbed the "Final Five" at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, and she was a member of the first-place American teams at the 2014 and 2015 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships. She graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2020, where she was a member of its women's gymnastics team. She helped the UCLA Bruins win the 2018 NCAA Championships.

College career


Kocian began attending the University of California, Los Angeles in the fall of 2016 and joined the UCLA Bruins gymnastics program. Her collegiate debut came on January 7, 2017, in a home dual meet against the University of Arkansas where she won three individual event titles and tallied an all-around score of 39.425 to win the all-around title. Kocian and 2012 Olympic gold medalist Kyla Ross became the first Olympic gold medalists to compete in NCAA gymnastics. In February 2017, she scored a perfect 10.0 on the uneven bars in a dual meet against Stanford. On March 27, 2017, Kocian received first-team regular season All-American honors in the all-around and second-team honors on floor exercise. She helped UCLA place fourth in the Super Six at the NCAA Championships.


On August 21, 2017, Kocian underwent surgery to repair her torn labrum, an injury she had dealt with since the 2016 Olympic Trials. She returned to NCAA competition on January 20, 2018, in a dual meet against Arizona, competing on only balance beam. She added floor exercise to her repertoire on February 25 in a dual meet against Oregon State, and she returned to competing on uneven bars at the NCAA Regional Championship on April 7. She helped UCLA win the PAC-12 Championships. During the Super Six finals, she fell on the balance beam but contributed great performances on uneven bars and floor exercise to help UCLA win their first NCAA Gymnastics title since 2010.


On January 21, Kocian earned her second career perfect 10 on uneven bars in a meet against Arizona State. She helped UCLA repeat at the PAC-12 Championships, and UCLA finish third at the NCAA Championships. Kocian earned several post-season accolades, including Pac-12 First Team honors on uneven bars and was named to the Pac-12 All-Academic team with a 3.81 GPA.


Kocian was sidelined for the first few weeks of the 2020 season with shoulder soreness. She delayed surgery for another torn labrum to compete in her senior season. She returned to competition at the BYU, Utah State tri-meet where she competed on both uneven bars and floor exercise. On March 13, all remaining competitions for the season were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, including UCLA's senior night and the entire post-season. This effectively ended Kocian's gymnastics career. She confirmed in April she would not return to elite gymnastics due to her injury history.

Kocian was named the Pac-12 Conference scholar-athlete of the year for the sport of gymnastics. At the conclusion of the school year, Kocian was named UCLA scholar-athlete of the year alongside cross country athlete Millen Trujillo. She was also named as the Bruins' Tom Hansen Medal recipient alongside football player Darnay Holmes. She was nominated by UCLA for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award.
