A Russian gymnast, who resembles Raven, comes to the school. A boy Raven really likes mixes up the two girls, leading Raven to pretend to be the gymnast. At the gymnastics meet, which is scheduled for the next day, the boy thinks Raven's entering. Raven thinks the Russian girl can take her place, but -- unfortunately -- the Russian gymnast sprains her ankle, and can't perform!
