Im eleven and i love gymnastics, and started very young, but had to quit because i had very bad perfectionism( a syndrome were you feel like you have to be PERFECT). It was so bad that when i failed to get something right on the bars, i freaked out and wouldnt eat or drink anything or even talk to anyone. I got counseling, and im better now, so im starting gymnastics again. I want to be in the olympics to prove that no matter what i went through before, i can still shoot for the stars. This amazing olympians inspire me more than anything to keep going and not to let my past get in the way. Thank you!!!

The Fab 5 are amazing! I have been doing gymnastics since i was 2 and i am on level 6. Gabby, Aly, Jordyn, McKayla, and Kyla inspired me to push myself harder. This book was amazing. I recomend buying it. Go Fab 5 in the 2016 summer olympics.

The name is actually the fierce five. They were originally going to name it the fab five but another team had already used that name. You need to be more careful what you pick because the title says a lot. Trust me. I know what I'm talking about. I'm a very advanced gymnast.
