In the company of Champions

That beauty is Gabrielle Douglas, currently second in the standings at the U.S. gymnastics Olympic trials.  I wish her luck!

The trials are being held not far from us, in San Jose.  This is an incredible opportunity for my budding gymnast Wasabi Girl to see fabulous world class gymnastics.  We'll be going to the finals on Sunday evening.

Today she will be among the demonstrators for the  meeting of the U.S.A. gymnastics congress, a meeting of gymnastics educators that's being held in the convention center next door.  They put out the call for young gymnasts with specific skill levels to come and demonstrate moves and routines.  She'll be spending all morning with other local talented gymnasts doing fly-aways and other skills on the uneven bars.

It's exciting to have this happening near our home town.  Good luck to all the hopefuls out there!
