Campana's mom has special interest in Olympics
CHICAGO -- Tony Campana's mom, Faye, is keeping a close eye on the summer Olympics. A former star gymnast at Indiana State, she teaches gymnastics in Springboro, Ohio, and was an alternate judge for the Summer Games one year.

Campana doesn't remember his mom's athletic feats. As the Cubs outfielder said, "That was pre-Tony."

Tony did inherit her athleticism. He used to do back flips when he took the baseball field in high school.

Campana watched the Olympic opening ceremonies Friday night from London.

"I like watching the running more than the gymnastics," he said. "My mom says I watch the running because I can do that."
