Crossing the finish line for the very first time. Intense training day after day. The shock of not making the cut.
The lives of athletes are full of moments they’ll never forget–moments of victory and defeat that not only remind them of how far they’ve come but also drive them to do even better. Read the journeys of six young athletes as they train, compete and follow their dreams.
Getting to the top is no easy feat, but staying there is even more challenging. Can they keep up this winning streak?

About Our Authors
Young people often struggle to be heard, but Elephant Community Press offers opportunities for students to share their ideas with friends, family and the community at large. By publishing the work of young authors, ECP aims to demonstrate that there is an audience for well-crafted and thoughtful writing, no matter how old the writers are.
Our young authors range in age from 6 to 17 and attend both local and international schools in Hong Kong. They herald from diverse backgrounds, but share with us a passion for storytelling and the belief that everyone has something worthwhile to say.
ECP has worked with students from a wide variety of schools including Canadian International, German Swiss, Kennedy, Diocesan Girls’ Junior School, St. Paul’s Co-Ed, West Island, Braemar Hill, Diocesan Boys’ School, Singapore International, French International, HKIS, Glenealy and Renaissance College.
