The Olympic Games are
still a long way off — literal-
ly and figuratively — for gym-
nast • Dana Dobransky, but
she stayed in the race for an
Olympic berth by placing
15th at the U.S. Classic in
Athens, Ga. last weekend.
As a member of the 1987
U.S. national team, Dobran-
sky bypassed the zone com-
petition and went directly to
the Classic. Her next event is
the USA Championships in
Houston July 7-10. The top 20
finishers from that meet ad-
vance to the Olympic Trials
in Salt Lake City in August.
Six competitors, plus two
alternates, will then advance
to the Olympics in Seoul,
South Korea in September.
The Sterling Heights native
says she continued her steady
improvement at the Classic.
"I did a lot better. I've just got
to go to the championships in
two weeks and hit, and show
`em what I've got."
Dobransky had an "in-
teresting thing" happen dur-
ing her compulsory exercises
last weekend. While a storm
raged outside, the gym's
lights went out just before she
dismounted from the balance
beam. When the power
returned, she repeated her
dismount, and was awarded a
score of 9.7 (of a possible 10.0)
for the routine.
That kind of coolness
should help Dobransky in the
next two meets. At Houston,
she says, "I'd like to stick (per-
form correctly) my beam
routine . . . I'm trying some
new stuff on (parallel) bars.
And I'm going to be
upgrading my dismount off
the beam and hopefully just
try to stay as consistent as I
can."
Consistency, says Dobran-
sky, will be the key at the
next two events. "You really
want to hit. Because the
name of the game at USA
Championships is to go eight-
for-eight," with no mistakes
in all eight routines. In other
words, "staying on the equip-
ment."
What are her chances to
reach the Olympic Trials?
"There's 28 gymansts com-
peting" for the 20 spots at
Salt Lake City, "and I have
just as much chance, I guess,
as everyone else."
She is also philosophical
about the high stakes of these
events. "I'm just trying to
take one meet at a time and
not thinking of it as Olympic
Trials — I'm thinking of it as
another meet. Then after I'm
done and I realize what I did,
then we'll see."

Her workout schedule, 7:30
a.m. until noon every day
with extra private time later
in the day, "gets exhausting,"
she admits, "but it's much
nicer with school out."
Though the top U.S. gym-
nysts are competing for an ex-
ceptional prize — Olympic
participation — Dobransky
describes the feeling among
the group of mostly high
school-age girls as "almost
like we're a big family." She
adds, "You go out there and
perform as good as you can
and then, basically, the
judges decide your score."
