Olympic Dreams

An article in the Columbus Dispatch yesterday was titled:
"Does it make sense to let a 12-year-old chase her olympic dream?"

The article is about Marcy Hinzmann, who is at Turin this week, fufilling her childhood dream of going to the Olympics. The decision to take Hinzmann out of school at the age of 12, to dedicate her life to figure skating, was a difficult one, wrought with sacrifices and uncertainty. For her case, it turned out to be the right one.

How many others are there, who, like Marcy, have a dream? How many of them chose to take the risk and make sacrifices to fufil their dream? How many of them made the right choice?
