Boginskaya is supposed to be too old and too tall for this sort of thing, yet here she is, nearly five years past her prime, trying to write what could be the most improbable of Olympic tales.At 23, standing 5 feet 4, Boginskaya is back in gymnastics.During the European Gymnastics Championships, Boginskaya showed that she still can compete with the children by winning the silver medal in Saturday's all-around final.

GAITHERSBURG - The line between elation and despair is a rust-colored scar, the length and width of a ballpoint pen, that runs from Courtney Kupets' heel to her calf. In June, Kupets was on top as the 2003 U.S. all-around women's gymnastics champion. Now, the 17-year-old is pushing herself through the grind of rehabilitation, trying to prepare for the U.S. championships and Olympic trials in June. "I have plenty of time from my point of view," says Kupets, who sandwiches a full day of classes at Gaithersburg High School between grueling exercise and physical therapy sessions.

Did the Baltimore Arena play host yesterday to a gymnastics exhibition, where style had the upper hand over substance, or was the Reese's World Gymnastics Cup a full-fledged competition?The answer, on both counts, was yes.Well, sort of.For Oksana Chusovitina, who claimed the women's all-around title, there was no question that the Reese's Cup was a combination of serious competition and exhibition.And because she approached the exhibition in that fashion, Chusovitina walked away with the gold medal, besting Gaithersburg's Dominique Dawes by one point, and winning $6,550 in prize money.
