Göksu Üçtaş, born August 30, 1990 in Şahinbey, Gaziantep Province, Turkey is a Turkish female artistic gymnast. She is coached by Mergül Güler. Üçtaş graduated in 2011 as a teacher of physical education and sports from the Abant Izzet Baysal University in Bolu Province. She won the silver medal in the vault event at the 2009 Mediterranean Games held in Pescara, Italy. In 2010, Üçtaş won the bronze medal in the floor exercise event at the FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Cup A held in Doha, Qatar. At the World Cup in Artistic Gymnastics-Grand Prix Ostrava 2010 in the Czech Republic, she won the gold medal in the floor exercise, silver medal in the balance beam and silver medal in the vault event. She was qualified to participate in the 2012 Summer Olympics as the first ever Olympic gymnast from Turkey.

Göksu Üçtaş started her career in Gaziantep, pursuing her training in Bolu. Her mother encouraged her to take up gymnastics after learning that a neighbour’s daughter had started training in the sport. She has consistently raised the bar during her 16-year career and is riding high, with particular success over the last three years. Her talent and dedication led her to win Turkey’s first medal in gymnastics. She then went on to win three medals at once in 2010 in Ostrava. She continues her training with the support of her family, and would like to pursue a career as a trainer. A bright future in gymnastics lies ahead of her. Göksu is working quite hard to realize her goal of winning a medal and a good ranking at London 2012. Defining gymnastics as “life, love, passion and success”, Göksu is preparing for the Games with double training sessions six days a week.
