In 3 : gymnastics – hard work – team work In this special gymnastics-centred story the emphasis is all on the importance of hard work and teamwork in sporting success. Fresh from their triumph at the regional championships, Tara and her team-mate Lindsay are preparing for a national competition. It’s hard and, eager to do as well as possible, Tara spends nearly all her time practising - at the expense of her school work. She’s not alone in finding this difficult however, and with the help and advice of other young gymnasts in her club, she manages to sort things out. It’s a fun story that perfectly captures all the excitement and challenges of competing at sport. ~ Andrea Reece
A message from Olympic medal winner Beth Tweddle.
Like Tara in Gym Stars I dreamed of becoming a world-class gymnast and joined my local gym club. Tara’s story reminds me of my early days of training and the thrill of entering my first big competition. I hope you enjoy reading about Tara as much as I have and if you want to become a gym star too – go for it! With focus, talent and dedication your dreams really can come true…
