HUXLEY, IOWA - Rain washed out Rachel Watters' chance to throw discus and shot, so she went to her soccer practice. This is the norm and one of the many reasons she was crowned homecoming queen last fall.

The tiara fit nicely, and she's a leader on the soccer field but Watters is most at home on a wrestling mat. "I love everything I do," said Watters, "wrestling is definitely my highest priority, and it`s the thing I love the most."

And this weekend it could be the thing that makes her an Olympian. Watters finished 4th in the U.S. Open qualifying her for the Olympic trials this Saturday in Iowa City, "I`m definitely getting super nervous, but I`m also super excited. I got to represent the United States at Brazil at the Junior worlds this Summer. And I would love to have USA on my singlet again."
