SAN JOSE, California -- Rachel Gowey is living her dream of competing in the US Olympic Trials.

Gowey is a long shot to make Team USA, but she's ok with that, as are her parents.

Rhonda and Jerry couldn't be more proud of Rachel and what she has accomplished, even though they hardly ever see her perform.

The Goweys leave the arena every time Rachel's event comes up.  Superstition and nerves, that's how they've always done it.

Rachel is in 12th place after the first night of trials, she has one more night of competition on the big stage on Sunday.

After that, it's off to the University of Florida next year.
