I was gonna post a thread like this too but you did before me
I'm a huge fan of gymnastics too, and here are my favorites:
Verona Van De Leur
And all the other Chinese gymnasts, especially Yang Yun & Zhang Nan
So this is love, Mmmmmm
So this is love
So this is what makes life divine
I'm all aglow, Mmmmmm
And now I know
The key to all heaven is mine
My heart has wings, Mmmmmm
And I can fly
I'll touch every star in the sky
So this is the miracle that I've been dreaming of
So this is love
A dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep, in dreams you lose your heartaches, whatever you wish for, you keep
What ever happened to that American girl, Dominique Moceanu? I heard somewhere that she got into some trouble.
Anyone know anything?
Well the last I heard (and this is quite a long time ago) was that she was totally estranged from her parents and tried to make a comeback for Sydney 2000 but got injured and was nowhere near good enough.
Its a real shame about Mo because she was so talented, but I cant help think 'burn-out'. She was an Olympic gold medallist at 14 and had already been to a world champs at 13. After 1996 I think she had loads of problems, both in gymnastics and in her private life
Yay, great to see so many Dominique Dawes fans!! She is certainly my second fave ever (behind Mo )
I always felt with Dom that she was one of the most talented gymnasts ever but just never fulfilled it. I think her problem was in her head. At worlds 93 and 94 and Atlanta Olympics she had the chance for gold but blew it with mistakes (usually on vault! ) and always just finished out the medals
