But whenever it came to the Olympics, she would tire out for some reason. I don't even think she could finish the last Olympics she was in. It is really a strange thing to see people like that.
    It really is amazing how debilitating the mind can be to an athlete. Mental pressure to perform/succeed can certainly lead to a chemical imbalance in the body leading to its opposite result.

Fore some other guys, it has the opposite effect.
    Andrew Alton is Exhibit A in this case.

    I would say not exactly, although visually I can see why someone would say that. There was more than meets the eye in his case.

    Whew! And here I was afraid that you would be needlessly cryptic and mysterious....
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    Haven't heard about Thielke/Graff yet but I'm glad to be back. Haven't been able to get on the site for months for some reason. I'm not sure why. I've been trying every day for months and suddenly the site opened up. Must be computer nazi problem at work.

    PS. Keep an eye on that Josh Bird kid from WI, Cadet Freestyle and Greco this week at Fargo. 126 hopefully!
