    Jordyn Wieber

    I think Jordyn deserved a place in the all around finals she is the nashional world champion
    This book explaines the meaning of going to the olympics
    It tells how both gymnasts felt before the Olympic trials
    Martha Karolyi made a good decision on who to take to the olympics

    Awesome Awesome

    This book shows the rivalry between these two good competiers. I personally think Douglas is a better gymnast because Wieber didnt make the all around and Douglas along with Aly Raisman made it.

    People,
    The only reason jordyn did not get into the AA ws because she came in 3rd. They took three people. But, they could not all b efrom the same team so the person in third had to be replaced by whoever came in 4th if the 4th place person is from a different team. If fourth is from the U.S. then the person in fifth and so on

    I need shawn

    I loved the but i want shawn.i am a gymnast and acrobat so some people like allie raismen and shawn would be cool because me lily state and my best best friend hannah shultz need more gymnasts or possible more people. What i absolutle loved about the book is that when they talk about jordan and gabby they use details about there life now and what there life was like for the gymnasts when they were children like me. This book should also inspire kids to become olimpic gymnasts now and then. And because of this mini article people will be interested in gymnastics places for me i love stumpfs. Thank you

    Hi

    This book seems to look awesome.I might get it because of Gabby Douglas aaaannnnndddd Jordan Wieber.These gymnast are totally awesome with Kyla,Aly, and Mycala.Jordan could have won if she did not break her leg.I love gymnastics so much I really am looking forward to watching the Olympics again.This book would be really good for gymnast or people who are into sports.I love doing cartwheels and flips in my backyard it is so fun.I am wondering if they are going to make a book about the whole 2012 summer oylmpics usa gymnastics team
