The Science of Gymnastics



I love science. But I'll be honest with you - this book was a bear! It's not easy explaining how scientific principles apply to a specific sport. You really have to understand the material first! Luckily, I love research. Also, I'm a perfectionist when it comes to getting the facts right.

What I loved best about researching this book, though, was learning more about famous gymnasts I've always heard about, like Nadia Comaneci. I can't remember how much of her story made it into this particular book (I've written others about gymnastics and don't have this one on hand at the moment.) But this project was a great excuse to watch video of Comaneci's "perfect 10" Olympic wins in 1976!
