Get geared up for the Summer Olympics this weekend when the Tour of World Gymnastics Champions stops at the Wachovia Spectrum.

As Shawn Johnson descended safely on her floor routine's final twisting pass, the high-pitched squeal of 13,920 Wachovia Center fans burst like an emotional mortar. Johnson's freckled countenance, soon to become one of the American Olympic team's signature faces, loosened into a smile. And Martha Karolyi, who will guide the U.S. team in Beijing, leapt to her feet like the vaulters she'd been watching and applauded. Johnson's Iowa gym may have been flooded last week, but there was no way it was going to rain on her Philadelphia parade.

Nadia Petrova battled stifling heat, sore legs and the temptation to retire to defeat Patty Schnyder, 6-3, 4-6, 6-1, and win the Family Circle Cup yesterday in Charleston, S.C., for her second straight tournament victory. Petrova, who also won last week at Amelia Island, now has four tour victories, all in the last 6 months. Her first came last October at Linz, Austria, where she also defeated Schnyder. Petrova won last month at Doha, but yesterday marked her first top-tier tournament win. "I really had a difficult time today.

IT WAS A GAUGE for some, a foothold for others, entertainment for all. Last night, at the first of two rounds of women's Olympic team trials, a few injured gymnasts exhibited how close - or how far - they are from being viable members of the 2008 team. Others began the process of impressing Martha Karolyi and the rest of the selection committee, which, at a camp that ends July 20, will determine which six gymnasts (and two alternates) will make the final cut. Two - Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin - delighted the 12,490 watching at the Wachovia Center and reaffirmed that the United States will have a pair of aces in Beijing come August.

BEIJING - As the reigning world champions, the U.S. women were expected to sail into the Olympic gymnastics team final without drama. But yesterday's qualifying session was rife with it - starting when Samantha Peszek sprained her ankle during warm-ups before the squad was due to march onto the floor at Beijing's National Indoor Stadium. The hobbled Peszek, scheduled to compete in all four disciplines, could manage only one, joining the similarly sidelined Chellsie Memmel, who sprained an ankle last weekend.

The starry-eyed preteen gymnasts who filled the Wachovia Center told the story. They shrieked for Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin, the golden girls of American gymnastics. They roared for Chellsie Memmel. Johnson and Liukin brought the star power to the Olympic trials. All Memmel did was deliver stunning routines that should make her the third lock for the U.S. team that will contend for gold medals in Beijing in August. Not bad for a gymnast whose time was supposed to have come and gone, who might have been best remembered for a televised humiliation that never should have happened.
