This 2010 release received numerous accolades in the figure skating world and was named one of the top ten 2010 inspirational summer reads by Quest Magazine. Its follow-up release Still Skating Forward received the Mom's Choice Awards Silver Medal for best Young Adult Non Fiction and the Purple Dragonfly Children's Book Awards Gold Medal for Best Children's and Young Adult Sports Book. Now, this latest installment includes interviews with former member of the U.S. Figure Skating Olympic Teams from 1972 to 2010. The book also includes an interview with 1988 silver medalists Elizabeth Manley. Each shares their own personal story about their time at the Games and wonderful photos to accompany these stories. Elizabeth Manley explains her struggle to get to the Games battling many training hardships and then a flu bug and knowing this was her last chance to medal. Karen Courtland and Todd Reynolds talk about the hardships the team endured in 1994 during the Tonya and Nancy mess and how hard it was to keep focused and remember why they were competing with so much media focusing on the U.S. Figure Skating Team. Young Caryn Kadavy achieved her dream of going to the Games and had to drop out of the long program once there as she contacted a severe flu bug. She shares how this event changed her but how much to this day she appreciates the fact that she is an Olympian, as well as so many more wonderful stories!
