Does she have a full time job or is she wealthy? If she just wants to compete for her own joy as a hobby I don't see why people have a problem with it. Does she devote full time to it or does she have a real life on the side and then just do this on and off? That said, if my assumption is not correct and if she actually thinks she could make Olympic team then she needs serious help, though I do not think that is really the case. How does she have money to train if she is doing this full time?
