secrets of US gymnastics success"
"There are many, many more gymnasts than there are scholarships
and we get hundreds of tapes every year from girls who want
to be on our team," Beach said. "And, this year, we had only
two scholarships to give, so it was very competitive." (Fairmont
senior earns BGSU gymnastics scholarship)
[Our note: back in September, Deva gymnastics school could
barely have enough kids to make a single gym class (opposed
to hard competition, last years, for the two classes). Apart
form high prices the parents have now to pay (up to $70 / monthly
for housing and " food" , more like many college students
around Romania have to pay), their miserable way of treating
former gymnasts is not a good way to attract new gymnasts: instead
of a $ 30 000 cash prize, Deva Club paid a lousy
$ 1500 to their only Athens medalist].
"The people that have helped me the most in gymnastics are my
parents and coaches.They have been really supportive."(Gutkowski
rises in gymnastics)

moral, verbal abuses and bashing on them]
