Suri Cruise reportedly wants to be an Olympic gymnast after watching the 2012 Olympic games.

The six-year-old daughter of actor Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes caught Olympic fever after watching the London 2012 Games and was so impressed with America's gold winner Gabby Douglas, she wants to follow in her footsteps.

"Suri is gaga for Gabby and the whole women's summer Olympic gymnastics team. Forget acting and modelling - Suri says when she grows up she wants to be an Olympian," quoted a source as saying.

"She really got caught up in the excitement. She's been taking lessons at Chelsea Piers, near Katie's bachelorette pad for over a month and her coaches have been telling Katie and Tom their daughter has the right stuff and shows a lot of potential," the source added.

Katie and Tom, who divorced earlier this year, are thought to be relieved their daughter doesn't want to follow in their footsteps and start acting.
