U.S. men's gymnastics team captain Jonathan Horton - who took home Silver and Bronze Medals in Beijing's 2008 Games - is relying on fun to stay focused as he prepares for the 2012 Olympic Games. "We goof around," Horton, 26, says of life at London's Olympic Village. "We are a very serious team, but at the same time, we're a bunch of goof balls and I think that's what keeps us relaxed, what keeps our spirit alive," he adds. "We're here to perform and have a great time, [but] if we take this too [seriously], the stress and pressure and weight of the world will fall on us. »
