Maybe they imagined they were stars, or angels, or insane birds. Sometimes they grabbed each other's hands and legs and twisted them so harshly that it was a miracle nothing broke. When they all squatted in the water with just their hands above the surface, it was as if they were praying. There was something terrifying about it. In a stateless place, on the wrong side of a river separating East from West, six girls meet each day to swim. At first, they play, splashing each other and floating languidly on the water's surface. But as summer draws to an end, the game becomes something more. They hone their bodies relentlessly. Their skin shades into bruises. They barter cigarettes stolen from the factory where they work for swimsuits to stretch over their sunburnt skin. They tear their legs into splits, flick them back and forth, like herons. They force themselves to stop breathing. Then, one day, it finally happens: their visas arrive. But can what's waiting on the other side of the river satisfy their longing for a different kind of life?

It's summer behind the Iron Curtain, and six girls begin a journey to the Olympics. But will they come back? In a stateless place, on the wrong side of a river separating East from West, six girls meet each day to swim. At first, they play, splashing each other and floating languidly on the water's surface.

Praise for The Union of Synchronized Swimmers "Cristina Sandu's spare and sparkling prose is intimate and visceral. A deeply moving story about six women who dare to dream bigger than their muddy river, whose lives splinter from their tight synchronized formations into an unflinching, often unforgiving world. An exquisite and powerful read." --Lindsay Zier-Vogel, author of Letters to Amelia "Cristina Sandu's narration is magical ... Her poetic and airy prose weaves together the strongly metaphorical and the realistic ... In these moving stories about the fates of Eastern European women, her narrative is universal and titanic." --Suomen Kuvalehti

Elite Sport Development addresses important sport policy questions and explores the emergence, development and current status of elite sport development policy with detailed examination of Australia, Canada and the UK. The sports compared are swimming, track and field athletics, and sailing. The book looks at the problems faced in establishing an elite sport development infrastructure covering facilities, coaching, sports science and competition. Likewise, full-time athletes are considered and the tensions that a pre-occupation with elite achievement generates within the sports is also examined. Includes: * why governments invest heavily in elite sport * the relationship between Government and NGB's * the impact of elite investment on 'sport for all' * the selection of individual sports for priority funding. This detailed text will be of interest to students, researchers and professionals working in sports development and policy.
