Competitive Gymnastics for Girls
Just in time for the new wave of interest in women's athletics, here is a series of books teaching the basics of eight different sports that girls can play in competition, for good health, and for just plain fun. The books include current rules of the sports, brief biographies of stars in each sport, updates about professional leagues, and plenty of full-color action photographs.
The sport of girls' gymnastics combines grace and beauty with controlled power. Through detailed explanations, the author shows how that power is developed and how grace and beauty result. She also shows that while the typical Olympic gymnast is small, any girl with the desire can become a gymnast and enjoy herself.
