Lessons don't come cheaply. But few are hammered home to a 15-year-old under television lights with a national championship on the line. Holding a large lead with one event to go last Saturday in the U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Denver, Vanessa Atler fell from the uneven bars and tumbled into a first-place tie with Kristy Powell.

UCLA freshman Kate Richardson accomplished her goal of winning the balance beam title Saturday night in the NCAA Women's Gymnastics Championships. But she said sharing the uneven bars title with teammate Jamie Dantzscher was a bit of a surprise. "More icing on the cake," Richardson said. "I wanted to redeem myself for making mistakes on the bars last night." Richelle Simpson of Nebraska won the floor exercise and Ashley Miles of Alabama took the vault.

Jamie Dantzscher could be bitter. She could be angry or hurt or depressed. She could have discarded her sport in disgust and refused to talk about the 2000 Olympics again. But she isn't bitter. She is an Olympian. That's important. Even better, her father John, who was willing to move his family from Palmdale to San Dimas so Jamie could get the best coaching possible, was at the Arrowhead Pond on Monday night.

Jamie Dantzscher ran out of energy after competing in every event for three consecutive days at the NCAA women's gymnastics championships. The UCLA sophomore also ran out of adjectives to describe her elation at winning the vault title and sharing the floor exercise title with Nicole Arnstad of Louisiana State Saturday at Coleman Coliseum. "I was half dead, but I made it through," said Dantzscher, who had won the all-around championship Thursday. "Winning two events was really cool."

Some day Jamie Dantzscher may be able to find the positives of her Olympic experience but it probably will not be soon. Dantzscher, a member of the U.S. women's gymnastics team, is home in San Dimas with five of her six siblings. But Dantzscher's mother, Joyce, 21-year-old sister Jennifer and father John are still in Sydney. Last Friday John and Jennifer were in a Sydney taxicab. While going through an intersection, the cab was hit broadside by a bus.

Jamie Dantzscher didn't know she needed to score a 9.85 on the uneven bars, UCLA's final event, to take the lead in the tense competition for the NCAA women's all-around gymnastics title. The sophomore from San Dimas got a 9.90 for her strong, assertive routine Thursday night, but she knew Alabama's Andree Pickens was capable of scoring a 10 on the balance beam and forging a tie. "She could have done it easily," Dantzscher said. "Her beam routine is gorgeous." Pickens came close, with a 9.95.

As soon as Jamie Dantzscher did her twisting dismount off the balance beam Saturday, landing solidly on her feet, she leaped into the arms of her coaches, Steve Rybacki and Beth Kline-Rybacki. Dantzscher, an 18-year-old from San Dimas, knew what she had done. She had just won the bronze medal for all-around performance at the 2000 U.S. Gymnastics Championships and stamped herself as a strong contender for the Olympic team.
