U.S. Gymnastics Team Wins in Stuttgart

The US-China rivalry steams up again just as everything else about the U.S & China. The top 2 teams in the women's Olympic qualifiers in Stuttgart, Germany are headed for a showdown for the Beijing 2008 Olympics. The Olympics competition for Women's Gymnastics shall be one of the highlights of the events, where the skills of the Americans will be tested against the hometown advantage of the Chinese women gymnasts. It should be worth the price for buying the expensive tickets... If anybody can still get one. LOL
The stars for the Stuttgart win for the U.S. were Alicia Sacramone, Ivana Hong, Shawn Johnson, Nastia Liukin, Samantha Peszek, Alicia Sacramone & Shayla Worley. But the China Womens' Gymnastics Team composed of Cheng Fei, He Ning, Jiang Yuyan, Li Shanshan, Xiao Sha, Yang Yilin said they will definitely give the Americans a great fight. It's going to be a blast on next year's Olympics.
