posted on 09/16/2000
Jennifer Parilla, 19, (Lake Forest, Calif.) marched in Opening Ceremony - the first U.S. trampolinist to do so.

"It was so beautiful…some of the biggest guys on the U.S. team were crying… I was able to walk through to the front row and was in a perfect spot for pictures. I was in awe. My jaw jus dropped. I am happy my camera ran out of film, then I was able to enjoy the ceremony and watch.

Parilla competes on September 22.
