This stunning look at the U.S.A. women's gymnastic team showcases the hard work and courage that brought these stars to the Olympic Games.

As the editor's note says, the gymnasts featured should form the core of the Summer Olympic team. Gymnastics, and particularly women's gymnastics, have been attracting huge crowds at the Olympics for decades. After winning the gold medal in team competition, the US will be defending its title at the Sydney Olympics. Layden offers profiles of the superstars and some interesting flashbacks to great stars of prior Olympics. Among the better-known gymnasts who may be on the US team are Vanessa Atler, Kristen Maloney and Dominique Moceanu. In addition to the brief biographical sketches, there are great full color photographs of these athletes and their awesome skills. Part of a series entitled "Women Athletes of the 2000 Olympics" and a great choice for young kids interested in the upcoming games. 2000, Aladdin, Ages 8 up, $5.99.
