Golden Uses Gymnastics Instead of Adderall

Olympic hopeful Sean Golden was a hyperactive child. Instead of giving him the drug Adderall, however, his parents enrolled him in a gymnastics class.

Now, at age 24, Golden is gunning for a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team in 2008, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. The Gymnastics trials will be in his home town of Philadelphia.

He plans to go all out in the trials:

"Some people hold back a little bit. It only happens every four years, and some people feel like they cannot deal with the failure. They just want to hold back so they have an excuse. I want to put it all out on the line. That's what I did when I made the world team, and that's what I'll do at the trials."
