I caught Vuckovic, and not a moment too soon. There were only about a hundred meters remaining. I flew past him, and he could not respond to my push. I was running away from him. Running toward my destiny. Running toward Olympic glory and gold. Running toward a finish line banner that every Olympian dreams of crossing first.

From the moment Simon Whitfield burst onto the world stage at the 2000 Sydney Summer Games as triathlon's first Olympic champion, his winning personality and stellar athletic abilities have inspired young people around the globe. In Simon Says Gold, Simon describes his personal journey to Olympic glory as he recounts not only that glorious day in Sydney, but also the anguish of failing to repeat as Olympic champion in Athens in 2004, and his dramatic comeback at the 2008 Beijing Games, when his exhilarating race to a silver medal enthralled millions of fans around the world. Simon's stories of the highs and lows of his running career will captivate readers young and old, but his real message--that the simple pursuit of excellence is its own reward--will also inspire and motivate. Not everyone can be an Olympian. Simon Whitfield believes that true greatness is in performing to the best of one's ability. The reward is in the effort, not the outcome. Simon Says Gold includes his instructions on training--his advice is bound to surprise young athletes in any sport--and includes stories about family, friends, coaches, teachers and mentors --all those who have had a lasting impact on his life and helped make him a champion. Simon lives in Victoria, British Columbia.

Cleve Dheensaw has been a sportswriter with the Victoria Times Colonist for twenty-eight years. He has covered a total of six Olympic and Commonwealth Games. This is his sixth book for Orca Book Publishers and he lives in Victoria, British Columbia.

Let's Move--the key feature of these books is how easily they can be put into practice. Each booklet provides exercise leaders and teachers with a comprehensive range of information, which will help them with individual lessons e.g. with carefully chosen stimulating ideas on movement, plans for setting up apparatus etc. There are also patterns you can copy ideas for making things as well as children's songs set to music. Also the various pedagogic aspect of working with children are addressed, how children's gymnastic groups can be organized and new methods are looked at for encouraging children to move about. Let's Move--puts fun and the enjoyment of moving around first and foremost, starting with the child and its developing skills, and keeps on introducing more new and imaginative ideas. Let's Move--involves a series of games and activities that are based on gymnastics, movement and in some cases involves singing, in fact all the things that small children like to do. This is the first volume with a background theme to all the play and movement suggestions in its pages. Everything is based around the preference of being or acting like the animals familiar to children within their learning environment. A Creative Corner is introduced, providing the children with mental stimulation within the animal theme.
