Do you miss the Olympics? Feel like your life is lackluster with out some of the best athletes in the world dancing across your television screen? Then check out these ten books by US Olympians across multiple disciplines that can help fill that hole in your heart.
You’ll notice there a LOT of gymnasts on this list, and I could have included even more. Gymnasts become America’s sweethearts during the summer Olympics, even if we couldn’t care less about gymnastics the rest of the year, and with the recent abuse scandal coming to light, you can bet more and more gymnasts are going to keep speaking out and writing books. Personally, I’m looking forward to more ice skating/ice dancing books because I NEED a memoir of the Shib sibs or Meryl Davis.
