Missy Marlowe started gymnastics as a young girl, training at Rocky Mountain Gymnastics in Salt Lake City. She placed second at the 1987 US Nationals which made her a favorite to make the 1988 Olympic team, but a poor performance at the 1988 Nationals put her spot in jeopardy. She came through at the Olympic Trials to secure sixth place in all-around and make the 1988 US Olympic team. After the Olympics, Marlowe retired from international competition and attended the University of Utah, where she was an All-American for four consecutive years (1989-92).
After college Marlowe married former Utah football player, Joe Clausi. She announced gymnastics meets at the University of Utah, and became owner and head coach of Missy Marlowe’s Gymnastics and Sports Center. Their daughter, Milan Clausi, also became a top-level gymnast, competing at U Cal Berkeley.
