At fourteen years old, Dominique Moceanu was the youngest member of the 1996 U.S. Women's Olympic Gymnastic team, the first and only American women's team to take gold at the Olympics. Her pixie-like appearance, passion, and competitive drive quickly earned her the status of media darling, but behind the fame and flawless floor routines, her life was a series of challenges and hardships. From her stubborn father and long-suffering mother, to her acclaimed Svengali-like coach, Bela Karolyi, Off Balance reveals how each of the dominating characters contributed to her rise to the top, and delves into the often dark underbelly of Olympic gymnastics as only an insider can. Here, Moceanu finally shares the haunting stories of competition, how she hit rock bottom after being publicly scorned by her father, and how a family secret helped her open a new and unexpected chapter in her adult life.

Event Guidelines:  Dominque will only be signing books, no memorabilia.  Books may be personalized.
