The United States Gymnastics Federation, which operated in 1987 with a $6.9-million budget, gave its national team athletes only $6,000 in direct cash assistance for training and living expenses. The amount, less than 0.1% of its budget, is in direct contrast to other U.S. federations with similar budgets that gave their athletes between 3% and 11%. The skiing federation and its national team corporation, for instance, gave $1 million of its $9-million budget to its athletes.

Less than two months after the 1984 Olympic Games, enrollment at gymnastics schools doubled nationwide. Mary Lou Retton captured not only the gold medal as the best all-around gymnast, but also the pocketbooks of parents whose little girls led them to a local club, where they signed up for the chance to dream. Seven years later, those girls--still little, just older--make up the largest pool of young, talented gymnasts the United States has ever had.
