America's sweetheart from the Beijing Olympics is making a comeback and plans to compete at the 2012 Olympics at the age of 20 (is that old for a gymnast?).  She recently appeared on BBC World News America (see link for the video) and described her intentions.  The BBC is describing it as an 'impossible' comeback.  Since the Olympics she has had a kneee injury from skiiing and won Dancing With The Stars (little unfair right?).  Ican't see how you can do both of these?  Anyway I am sure that this may get a 'little' media coverage as the Olympics get closer.  Wish her the best she seems like a sweet girl.
