IN THE MID-SEASON FINALE OF "MAKE IT OR BREAK IT,"
MONDAY, AUGUST 24 AT 9:00 PM ET/PT ON ABC FAMILY
All Day 'Make It or Break It' Marathon Leads Into Finale
Burbank, CA (August 10, 2009) � All of the girls' hard work is put on the line as they compete in Boston for a spot on the National Gymnastics team in "All That Glitters," the mid-season finale of "Make It or Break It," premiering on ABC Family on Monday, August 24 (9:00 � 10:00 PM ET/PT). Viewers can catch up on all of the drama, dismounts and deceptions in an all day "Make It or Break It" marathon from 11:00 AM � 8:00 PM.
Everything the ladies of The Rock have been working towards is finally here with the beginning of the National Gymnastics competition in Boston. Payson is more determined than ever to beat Kelly Parker and grab the National Champion title she deserves, even if she is still dealing with back pain. Kaylie feels pulled in many different directions -- is she a normal teenager with a boyfriend, as Carter wants her to be, or is she an Olympic caliber gymnast, as her father wants, and can she figure it all out in time to compete? Lauren's angry attitude towards her mother, her father and Carter leaves her with a lack-luster performance which could risk her position in the standings. Emily, on the other hand, is petrified and fears that she is clearly over her head at this high stakes competition. Can Sasha get all of the girls in line and focused for the big event in time or will Nationals be a disaster for The Rock team?
