The director is making a comment; in this context he is not going to spend a bunch of time detailing what they might have done differently for her. Besides, with a 4:04.62 it may not matter any more.

My question was if the quote is correct would she be "thorped" (As in Jim) More specifically it was at what level does the compensation become problamatic. ie- You can give them free drinks, perhaps airline tickets, what about a car? I had assumed her parents had paid until I read Mr. Bass' quote. If correct cone size could be missed it is not inconcievable that other rules, as in what constitutes proffesionalism, could be also. After all weren't most, if not all, the competitors professionals?

Trying not to nit pic but what constitutes professionalism has changed over the last four decades and I have no idea where it stands today.

Anyone know?


Why would it matter?

I think the trappings of profesionalism are only problematic if she still intends to race hs/college. There are certainly other options available to her.

She is going to start competing in college two years from now? Another issue is that she is 17, so needs parents legal permission on things, although that does not seem to be a problem for the gymnasts.

I thought this was an easy question but I guess I confused everyone. Sorry

I should have asked do airline tickets recieved and lodgeing violate NCAA eligibility leaving her without the choice and ending full ride scholarship possibilities. ( I except her parents are rich and paying $200,000 for college would be no big deal.)

Answer - No. I looked it up. Travel, lodgeing, meals and equipment are allowed.

And you have no solid information on what the arrangements were, so it seems like a lot to worry about.
