sweeps and that. But in karate and that, they punch and kick and hit and everything, and we can't do that. We're not allowed. We get penalties. Alison: Judo, translated into English, is "the gentle way." And karate and those aren't very gentle! Carrie: (Do you dream judo?) Sometimes. (Do you win when you dream?) Well, some? times. (What are your plans for the Games?) Well, to fight well, and maybe to place-- get a medal. Alison: Do you have any dreams you want to share with me, Alison?) Well, I more sort of set goals for myself, more than dreams, sort of thing. From tournament to tournament, if there's one girl or boy that I find that I've had an extra hard time fighting them, I find, I set goals for myself for the next time, that I fight better against them.

If not, they have to be sort of complementing each oth? er, so that they're either opposite or the same. We live in the same house. Go to school to? gether. We go skating together. We're like brother and sister. (How long have the two of you been a pair?) Five or 6 years? When we were 10 we had the same coach, and she just decided (to) try us together, and it worked.
