Subject: Olympic Predictions.

Anyone with a web broser should take a look at something called
the "CRYSTAL BALL", some predictions of the 1996 Olympic Games in

Some things to note:

        "The American team, led by Shannon Miller (a veteran at 19) should
win the team gold but a Romanian with American citizenship,Dominique
Moceanu (15), will win the most individual medals."

        "Women's gymnastics is the biggest sports draw on American
        television, after American football."

From 1 Jan '96 about Olympic Predictions ...
> "... but a Romanian with American citizenship, Dominique Moceanu ..."

I know that Jeff himself did not write this, so I won't attriubute it to him,
but I thought it was worth noting that this statement is incorrect. Dominique
was born in the USA (Hollywood, CA to be exact) so she's *always* been an
American citizen. It was her parents who immigrated here from Romania, not
Dom herself.

Subject: "Little Girls in Pretty Boxes"

I recently read the book "little Girls in Prettty Boxes" and I'm writing a
book reveiw about it. If anyone has any opinions on the book I would love to
have some quotes for the article. Being that I really don't know much about
Gymanastics I was wondering if anyone who read it and is currently training
finds most of what Joan Ryan says true or an exaggeration. I'd be grateful
for any imput. You can E-mail to me at
     Thanks -Alili

If my memory serves correct, the age was 14 prior to I think 80 or 84.
It was 14 during the 1976 Olympics.  Elfie Schlegel (now a commentator)
was a 13 year old for Canada but would be 14 in that year.  Anyone else
out there remember differently?

Subject: Re: E-Mail software

In a prior letter to a subscriber mentioned that the high cost of E-MAIL on
COMPUSERVE and America On Line.  The AOL subscribers can save by using
the existing FLASHSESSION functions that exist on the current latest version
2.5 (and earlier versions too I think?).
This allows a user to retrieve and send E-MAIL and exit then use the personal
filing cabinet to read/sort mail off line.  Additionally E-MAIL can be
composed offline and sent later.

        About Elfi Shlegel (there's no "e" at the end btw), she was born
in 1964 (May, I think), so was only 12 during the 1976.  But from what I
have read, she was probably good enough to compete, just not old enough.

Hey, all. Merry Christmas and Happy New years. I'm back from break,
and I've been skimming through my email, and I thought I'd add in a
few little tidbits.

First, regarding gymn trivia and Elfi Schlegel. I'm not sure of her exact
age, but she was one of several Canadian gymnasts profiled in "The Young
Gymnasts," written by lyn Moran, and that focused mainly on athletes no
older than 14 (there were a few fifteen year olds). It's an interesting
book to leaf through if you can find it. Some of her predictions were
right on, with gymnasts like Tracee Talavera and Elene Yurchenko (I
think) getting some space.

Secon, where is Kerri Strug, after all this rumoring that she had moved
again? Is she now back at Karolyi's, or still in Colorado? Someone
mentioned recruiting by bela, I don't know if that is nessecarily the
case. I can think of many reasons that Kerri might have wanted to move,
and she does tend to bounce around a little from club to club.

Subject: Gym billing program

Does anyone have a Gymnastics billing program that provides full information of
 each student/parent.  I recently looked at Gym Dandy, it contained great info
 for each student, and receiving payment.  Yet it didn't have any billing or
 printing screens.

Thank's for the help.
