This week hopes will be dashed for several Olympic hopefuls. Not everyone who gets to the Olympic trials gets chosen for the team. This video shows sad endings in the careers of gymnastic stars and hopeful Olympians. Some careers even ended in death or paralysis. How devastating to gymnasts and their families who sacrificed much, all for the sake of a chance for Olympic gold.
In the middle of the excitement and joy of seeing potential Olympic champions make the team, stop and remember those who never saw their gymnastic dreams fulfilled.
