Dominique Dawes Relishes Role as National Fitness Motivator The London Olympics are now just over a year away, and if gymnastics great Dominique Dawes has her way, the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics team will win gold and “people will stop talking about the Magnificent Seven.”

That name, of course, was bestowed on Dawes and her teammates, the gold medal-winning team of the 1996 Summer Olympics. Now, she says, “These young athletes are quite talented and the tricks they’re doing are really impressive. I suppose that when I see them perform, I feel the same way Nadia Comaneci must have felt when she watched us.”

But, forget about the Magnificent Seven? “Oh, yes,” she affirms. “I believe it’s the mark of a good leader to want your successors to surpass you.”

The beautiful, well-spoken Dawes says she’d love to do on-air commentary for the London games. “The sport is my first passion,” she notes. But her other passion is at the forefront nowadays — pushing toward a national fitness revolution. She’s often at the White House, in fact, in her role as co-chair of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition (PCFSN) — and as a celebrity booster of First Lady Michelle Obama’s campaign to end childhood obesity.
