Tabitha Yim, the most decorated gymnast in Stanford history, enters her fifth season as a Cardinal assistant coach.

Yim was a 14-time All-American at Stanford from 2005-08, earning the most All-America honors in school history, including 13 first-team selections. She placed among the top 10 in the NCAA all-around competition all four years and twice won Pacific-10 Conference and NCAA regional all-around titles. No one in Stanford history has more NCAA top-10 finishes than Yim, who had 11.

Yim's versatility was her strength. She won two regional titles and one Pac-10 championship on the balance beam, was a two-time regional uneven bars champion, and twice placed third in floor exercise at the NCAA Championships.

A native of Irvine, Calif., Yim competed for the United States national team that placed third at the 2001 world championships. During her collegiate career, she led Stanford to two Pac-10 titles, one regional championship, and two NCAA Super Six appearances.

Before returning to Stanford, Yim was involved in Teach for America, and taught ninth-grade science at Animo Ralph Bunche Charter High School in south Los Angeles.
