It isn't always easy to appreciate these moments, to pay attention to the stories when the people involved are strangers.

Jeanette Antolin sat on a high chair, her legs dangling, her hands fidgeting and her head buried on the shoulder of her coach, Don Peters. The Huntington Beach gymnast, who has fought through a painful ankle injury to make it into the U.S. Olympic gymnastics trials, was trying to figure out what happened. In her very first event, the vault, where Antolin, an 18-year-old Marina High graduate, is strongest and most confident, she completed what she thought were two sturdy, stellar maneuvers.

Don Peters, former U.S. Olympic gymnastics coach, considered himself retired. Oh, sure, whenever he dropped by SCATS gymnastics headquarters, he would take a look at the young hopefuls and maybe offer a few encouraging words. But coach? No way, said the man who guided the U.S. women's team to a silver medal at the 1984 Games in Los Angeles. Then one day at the SCATS' warehouse facility, his eye was caught by young, petite gymnast Jeanette Antolin.

Her right shoulder aches, the rotator cuff is sore and what would help most is a couple of weeks off, just nothing but rest and some anti-inflammatory medication. But this is the Olympic year for Jeanette Antolin. She is 18 years old, a senior at Marina High and a gymnast with realistic dreams of being among seven women chosen for the U.S. team that will travel to Australia in September. And so, for now, there is no rest. For starters, there are the trips to Houston every month.

Gymnastics is such a seductive sport for women. It combines strength and grace, allowing women to be both athletes and entertainers. You must have thighs of iron, calves of steel and then you must also point your fingers and toes and you can wiggle your backside to music on the floor exercise tumbling routines. A girl can wear makeup and also have Popeye-sized muscles on her upper arms. Gymnastics also can be a cruel sport for women.
