Little gymnast has big dreams

The little gymnast is back-and a whole one-year older.

"Do you still like gymnastics?" we asked her. "How much?"


Five-year old Maddie Larson has gotten better at gymnastics.

"Way better," said Maddie.

Okay, way better at gymnastics.

She's more skilled, more flexible, and way, way stronger.

"I have an eight-pack and a six-pack," said Maddie. "Both."

And her Olympic dreams of becoming the next Shawn Johnson are apparently no longer dreams. She has her eyes set on...London? 2012?

"I would like to go in it instead of see it," said Maddie. "I would like to be in it."

Maybe in eleven years we'll see little Maddie Larson and her eight-slash-six pack competing for Team USA. But for now, she's still loving and living life in the gym.
