ATLANTA -- Her routine complete, U.S. gymnast Shannon Miller walked off the mat to a roar from the crowd. Her coach bounded toward her, wearing a huge smile. But Miller's smile was purposeful, her look serious. She seemed immune to all the commotion.Near the team's bench, Steve Nunno, Miller's coach, grabbed her shoulders, embracing her, then offered a catalog of encouragement. So excited was Nunno, he shook Miller's small body as he talked.She looked into his eyes, nodding. Her lips remained tight.

With a microscrew in her left elbow, a bow in her hair, and ice in her heart, Shannon Miller took a grip on first place at the U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Trials last night.Three months after tumbling off the uneven bars and dislocating her elbow, the fragile-looking yet ferocious-performing 15-year-old from Edmond, Okla., led the compulsories at the Baltimore Arena, piling up a score of 57.057.Miller was all grace and guts, a 4-foot-7, 71-pound dancer who performed with a glint of steel. She stared down the toughest little tumbler of them all, 1991 all-around World Champion Kim Zmeskal.

For the record, Shannon Miller, the reigning queen of the gymnastics world, will tell you that she is just an average high school girl from Edmond, Okla.There's nothing special to this tumbling, twirling 16-year-old, 4-foot-10, 79-pound sprite, who eats Frosted Flakes in the morning, plays with her puppy and goes to the movies when her schedule allows. Or so she says.Yes, Miller, who is only the second American woman to be crowned all-around world champion, will be the person most eyes will be focused on at today's Reese's World Gymnastics Cup at the Baltimore Arena, but she is just plain folks and not caught up in the trappings that can accompany talent and fame.

ATLANTA -- Kerri Strug batted leadoff for the U.S. women's gymnastics team during the first two rotations of yesterday's compulsories at the 1996 Olympic Games. Then she batted cleanup for the last two rotations. It was not only her versatility, but also her willingness to sacrifice personal gain for collective glory that summed up what turned into a wonderful afternoon for the Americans at the Georgia Dome.Strug, who at 14 was the youngest member of the 1992 team that won a bronze medal in Barcelona, Spain, set the tone with her first routine on the uneven bars and finished a nearly flawless performance by the Americans with her team's two highest scores.

But the tour also includes both Hamm brothers and golden oldie Shannon Miller. Former Olympian Carly Patterson is listed as a musical artist.

Congratulations to Dominique Dawes of Silver Spring and Gaithersburg High, who swept the gold medals in all-around and in all four events at the U.S. National Gymnastics championships at Nashville. First time anyone had in 25 years.Shannon Miller, the Olympic and world champion, had to be content with five silvers. Dominique, the tiny dynamo from Montgomery County, who has rewritten the definition of the possible in the floor exercise tumbling run, is No. 1. The two are pretty mature at 17. Whether to persevere to the Atlanta Olympics in 1996 is an agonizing question.
