Gymnast Courtney Kupets of Georgia is a top US gymnast and has now won the Honda-Broderick Cup, given to the nation's top female college athlete. She received the award Monday at Columbia University.

After missing the 2008 postseason with an Achilles' injury, Kupets returned to lead Georgia to its fifth straight NCAA championship. The senior won national titles in the all-around, bars, beam and floor competition. Her four titles tied the record for a single national meet.

At the 2004 Athens Olympics, Kupets won the silver medal in the team all-around and captured individual bronze in the uneven bars.

Kupets led Georgia to its fifth straight NCAA Championship team title, while also winning individual national titles in the all-around, bars, beam and floor. She became the first gymnast ever to win a national title in all five individual events (including the vault in 2007) and finished the 2009 season ranked No. 1 in all-around, bars and beam, and second on floor and vault. Kupets received five first-team All-America honors, making a total of 15 for her career (the maximum for only competing three years). See photos of Courtney Kupets here and here.
