National City staged a parade this week to honor Sweetwater graduate Gail Devers and her 100-meter gold-medal winning performance at the Barcelona Olympics. Could Santee be next?

John Macready, 17, a Santana High senior, is one of America's top young gymnasts, and his goal is gold at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.

It was unrealistic for John Macready to think that he could vault himself and his U.S. teammates from fifth to third on the final apparatus, but he did not become one of the country's leading gymnasts at 21 by accepting there are things he cannot do. Even in midair, when he realized that he was off balance, he thought that he could right himself for a solid landing. He, of course, could not. No one could have. Horizontal when he hit the mat, he still did not surrender.

He began his congratulatory stroll as soon as her score was announced, shaking hands along the way until he found his latest phenom. Dominique Moceanu, who trailed by one-thousandth of a point entering the final event, had just performed the best floor routine of her life to beat Shannon Miller--again--and Coach Bela Karolyi was exuberant.

Can't tell a Yurchenko from a Podkopayeva? A 2 1/2 punch front from a Tkatchev?
