March 04, 1992|By Orlando Sentinel

ORLANDO, Fla. -- It won't become official until this weekend's American Cup at Orlando Arena, but 1988 Olympian Brandy Johnson is expected to return to gymnastics competition and make a bid for a berth on the 1992 U.S. Olympic team that will compete this summer in Barcelona, Spain.

Johnson, who lives in Apopka, Fla., and finished 10th -- the top U.S. finish -- in the all-around competition at the Seoul Olympics in 1988, retired from gymnastics 1 1/2 years ago.

Six gymnasts plus one alternate will be selected from the U.S. Olympic Trials May 14-17 in Baltimore.
