I’ve been absolutely Olympic Games fixated these past two weeks. I’m certainly not alone because it seems that every conversation I have with people always ends up in Olympic chatting. The Games have been very exciting to watch. I have especially loved the swimming, diving, beach volleyball, and gymnastics. The medal results in all the events have been pretty much straight forward except for gymnastics. It appears that not only are we viewers puzzled by some of the ways the different gymnastic apparatus scores are determined, but also the coaches and athletes are confused by the methods used by the judges.

Rachael Reed has trouble sitting still. She'll practice her push-outs for gymnastics while she's doing homework, or even while she's being interviewed for a newspaper article. Like most 9-year-olds, Rachael is also pretty shy. "When she's performing [gymnastics] it goes away," said Camille Reed, Rachael's mom. "I don't think she realizes she's performing. " It's safe to say gymnastics comes naturally to Rachael, the fourth-grade La Cañada Elementary student. Although it comes more easily to her then to most, she still refines her skills five days a week, four hours a day, at Club Champion Gymnastics in Pasadena.
