THE ARRIVAL OF A SPORTS AGENT HEATS THINGS UP AT THE GYM,
IN AN ALL-NEW EPISODE OF "MAKE IT OR BREAK IT,"
MONDAY, AUGUST 3 AT 9:00 PM ET/PT ON ABC FAMILY
Burbank, CA (July 20, 2009) � The Rock is gearing up for Nationals, and with that comes more pressure, while Emily has to deal with the consequences of her actions, in "Run, Emily, Run," an all-new episode of "Make It or Break It" premiering on ABC Family on Monday, August 3 (9:00 � 10:00 PM ET/PT).
After the devastating loss to the Denver gym, The Rock intensifies its training for Nationals. Adding to the pressure is the arrival of a television crew to do profile pieces on the girls and a pushy sports agent who only sees financial opportunities coming out of the gym. While most girls shake off the agent's advances, Payson sees her arrival as a chance to help her family out of a sticky financial situation, but will Payson's parents see the agent's plans as a godsend too?
Meanwhile, Emily has to face the music after her disastrous performance at the invitational meet. Determined to still go to Nationals, she has to figure out a way to convince Sasha to let her back on the team.
