Australian World Champion gymnast Lauren Mitchell at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
The Commonwealth Games – the “Summer Olympics” for the fifty-three countries and member states of the British Commonwealth – are on now at the Gold Coast in Australia.
Because I’ve been a gymnastics person since I was three, of course I’m back in a sporty mindset. I haven’t even recovered from the Winter Olympics yet!
I have reviewed some sport-themed books on this blog, but books about gymnastics tend to be written for the under-eighteens. Perhaps that will change in the future, as there are now Olympic medallists in their thirties (and finalists in their forties!).
