NO EXCUSES: THE STORY OF ELITE GYMNAST AIMEE WALKER-POND
Adam U. Kempler
No Excuses traces the gymnastics career of a girl born deaf and partially blind. Despite challenge after challenge and setback after setback, Aimee rose in the gymnastics world to compete for UCLA and BYU and at the level of International Elite—a feat no athlete with comparable disabilities has accomplished in the history of the sport.
“Aimee’s not deaf. She just can’t hear. Why would she need two eyes, when she has one? She has no excuses.” (Valorie Kondos Field—Head Women’s Gymnastics Coach at UCLA who won six NCAA National Championships)
“Aimee has filled our hearts with the fire of warmth and love and inspired us all to become better.” (Bruno Grandi—President of the International Gymnastics Federation)
“Success is peace of mind that is the direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” (John Wooden—Head Men’s Basketball Coach at UCLA who won ten NCAA National Championships)
