Kim Bui autobiography

The legend — Kim Bui — represented Germany from 2004 until the 2022 European Championships in Munich. Three Olympics. Six World Championships. Always a fan favourite.

Though reluctant at first to write a career retrospective, she decided to go ahead hoping that sharing her story will help others.

“The hardest chapter to write was the one on eating disorders,” she said. “I had never talked about it until then. …”

Kim Bui on her battle with bulimia: “I want to say that you… are not alone”

Chellsie’s Challenges – by Chellsie Memmel

Life Lessons Learned From an Olympic Gymnast Paperback – March 5, 2023

.. Follow along with Chellsie as she takes you on a journey through the highs and lows of her elite gymnastics career and the lessons she learned along the way.


From reviews I’ve read, it sounds an inspiring read for adults, appropriate for teens and tweens, as well.

The title reminded me of Chellsie’s YouTube challenges. 😀

You Will Know Me by Megan Abbott

You Will Know Me (2016) is worth reading.

It’s an adult murder mystery not appropriate for children.

The Gymnastics coming-of-age story is incidental to the plot.

Author Megan Abbott was not a gymnast — but does a very credible job of writing from the perspective of a Gym Mom at BelStars Gymnastics.

She joined Gymnastics parent forums to listen to what they talked about.

You Will Know Me, follows a tight-knit gymnastics community as a brutal death sends shockwaves through everyone.

Parents Katie and Eric Knox have a 15-year-old daughter, Devon, who is both a gymnastics prodigy and an Olympic hopeful — but now, they worry that everything they’ve sacrificed for her might be at risk.

Can Katie hold her family together even as she’s distracted by and drawn into the crime itself?

Degrees of Difficulty by Georgia Cervin

How Women’s Gymnastics Rose to Prominence and Fell from Grace

How the Cold War era changed the trajectory of women’s gymnastics

Georgia Cervin is an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Western Australia and a former international gymnast.

Electrifying athletes like Olga Korbut and Nadia Comaneci helped make women’s artistic gymnastics one of the most popular events in the Olympic Games.

But the transition of gymnastics from a women’s sport to a girl’s sport in the 1970s also laid the foundation for a system of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse of gymnasts around the world.

Georgia Cervin offers a unique history of women’s gymnastics, examining how the high-stakes diplomatic rivalry of the Cold War created a breeding ground for exploitation. …

Cervin also charts the changes in style, equipment, training, and participants that transformed the sport, as explosive athleticism replaced balletic grace and gymnastics dominance shifted from East to West. …
