Gymnastics: Balancing Acts
Thirty of history's greatest gymnastics champions are featured here, including such celebrated gold medal winners as Kerri Strug, Dominique Moceanu, Vitaly Scherbo, Jaycie Phelps, Amanda Borden, Bart Conner, Svetlana Boginskaya, Amy Chow, and Mary Lou Retton.
"Everyone sees a gymnast's public moments-- the victories and defeats-- but no one, until now, has managed to bring out such an individually tailored, true portrait of these fine people as artists. Through their stories and photographs, we see a side of these great people which they only show to their closest friends."--Bela Karolyi
