A CBS news story on David Hallberg, with video.

We met Hallberg in October in his New York apartment, as he was packing for Russia. On the day he left, his parents, Bruce and Colleen Hallberg, were there from Phoenix, where he grew up, to send him on his way - with a little moral support.

"We never imagined it," Colleen said. "He had two goldfish he named Fred and Ginger. I mean, we just thought it was cute, and it was. Then he asked for tap shoes for a birthday, and we said 'Sure, why not?'"
