Keynote: Tara Nott-Cunningham
Weightlifting Olympic Gold Medalist
An Unlikely Path to the Olympics
Tara Nott-Cunningham began her athletic career after watching gymnast Nadia Comaneci in the 1976 Olympics. She attempted an aerial cartwheel and landed on her head—prompting her parents to enroll her in gymnastics at age four. Tara’s talent and athleticism led her to many sports, even earning her a scholarship playing Division I soccer.
After college, Tara worked for the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games in the sports department where she was introduced to weightlifting. Just over four years later, she competed in the 2000 Olympics, winning the 48kg gold medal. Tara had competed with a sports hernia and, following the Olympics, had a bilateral hernia repair. After surgery, she continued training and competed in the 2004 Olympics.
Tara is now retired from weightlifting and enjoys spending time with her five children, ages one to nine, and her husband, Casey Cunningham, Penn State assistant wrestling coach.
