It was gratifying to watch the American womens performance in the all around gymnastics round in Beijing. I think China needs a little bit of push back in this area. Congratulations to Liukin and Johnson for their outstanding performances.

Even as the father of a gymnast, I have only the slightest grasp of what it takes to do these things. I fully understand that if I tried gymnastics, I would be on the fast track to quadraplegic status.
