Nominated for a 1996 City of Newcastle Drama Award, this play travelled to the 1988 Commonwealth Games Cultural Festival, in Kuala Lumpur.

Two swimmers have their sights set on Olympic Gold: Stace and Igorina. Stace lives and trains in Australia and is starting to make her way up the competition ladder. Igorina lives in an unnamed war zone with little possibility of athletic glory. Their stories are linked by Mark Monroe, a sports journalist and war correspondent whose life is altered and affected by the changing fortunes of both girls. As the Olympics draws near, Igorina urges Stace to an action which could make her lose everything.

A play about teenage ambition and the Olympic ideal.
