posted on 07/06/2020

With great sadness, we share the passing of Margit “Grete” Treiber at the age of 92. Grete was a long-time coach and professor of physical education at Indiana State University where she started a gymnastics program in 1965 and led the Sycamores to great success. In 1972, she was selected to coach the World University Games team. Throughout her career, Grete also served as a Brevet judge and manager at various international meets, such as the Pan American Games, and was an NCAA Representative to the U.S. Olympic Committee (now the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee).

Grete was awarded the National Association of Women’s Gymnastics Judges’ Hall of Fame Award in 1980. In 1984, she was selected to the ISU Athletics Hall of Fame, and in 1988, she joined the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame.

Grete will be greatly missed across the gymnastics community.
