The Bedazzling of the American Gymnast Though television brings all the athletes up close, they can get lost amid the actual competition on the floor, and shine helps highlight and distinguish each girl. “When the judges are there, every little thing counts,” said Samantha Peszek, a member of the 2008 Olympic team who is working for NBC’s digital and social content team for this summer’s games. The crystals also serve to emphasize the aesthetic aspect of a sport that has become ever more focused on athleticism and tricks — to its detriment, some argue.
