Tribute to Alicia Sacramone
“You’ll Always Be Gold”
Being the most mature and experienced,
she was captain of the team.
To lead them to a team gold,
was her Olympic dream.
Our whole nation hoping their girls
would rise to the top and be the cream,
halfway through the third event
they were trailing…but picking up steam.
Then Alicia took her turn
on the four inch balance beam.
She immediately fell off,
losing points for her team.
The final event was
the floor exercise,
where Alicia fell again
sealing her team’s demise.
Heart broken inside,
realizing every gymnast’s fears,
TV cameras inches away,
she held back her tears.
Just a few minutes later
a rude interviewer in her face,
she conducted herself
with dignity and grace.
Having accomplished so much
for being only twenty years old,
In the eyes of many, Alicia,
you will always be GOLD!
