RAJ: GOOD LUCK IN BEIJING!
It was announced today that our good friend, Raj, will get the opportunity to compete in Beijing. This development comes after news that Paul Hamm chose to withdraw from the Olympic team due to injury. While it is never positive to lose an athlete, I think Paul made a good decision for Team USA, and am happy knowing that Raj will get the opportunity to represent our country in his first Olympic games. GOOD LUCK RAJ!
“This is a tremendous honor and the first feeling that comes to mind is that dreams can come true,” said Bhavsar, 27, who was an alternate on the 2004 Olympic Team.
“You never know when it will happen, but with enough positive intention and belief, it can. I am ready, willing and able to take on this great opportunity.
Unfortunately, this comes at the expense of a great athlete, Paul Hamm. My heart goes out to him. He did an admirable thing, and he will always be a hero in my eyes.
I also want to recognize the other two alternates, who are an important part of the soul and spirit of this team.”
