A Thought On The Olympics

I was struck that one of the men on the US gymnastic team, Aleksandr Artemev, is the son of a former Soviet Olympic medal winner; that one of the US women gymnasts, Nastia Liukin,  is also Russian and the daughter of two Russian Olympic medalists; that one of the US gymnastic coaches is Asian.

So, is there a Bob Smith on the Russian team? A Sally Jones on the Chinese team? How ’bout Billy Bob Devereaux on the Romanian team? No? Wonder why…
