Martha: 2012 and possibly beyond

Martha Karolyi is planning to lead the U.S. women’s gymnastics team at least through 2012, Bela Karolyi said this week in an interview with ESPN.

Karolyi said Martha’s battery is fully charged, and she’s ready to lead the team at least through the 2012 Olympics. She’s 66. “Martha is amazing,” Karolyi said. “I don’t know where in the world she gets that energy and drive. She really amazes me. She’s very, very much into it, very much dedicated.” Penny said the Karolyis are in USA Gymnastics’ long-term plan, and he expects Martha to run the women’s program at least through 2012. “The program is working, and people are happy about it,” he said. “People want to keep it going.”

Not everybody feels this way. What do you think?

    I really hope she can take it down a notch and lessen the overtraining and unbelievable stress the U.S. women face under her incessant scrutiny.
