    OLYMPIC gold medalist Christine Ohuruogu has joined up with writer Paul May to write a fiction for readers aged nine upwards. It tells the tale of Maxine who is crazy about sport and thrilled to be going to Camp Gold. She makes good friends and cute boys and discovers her hidden talent of running.
    Soon she is training for the Nationals and is watched by Olympic champions, but then as she prepares for a tough battle ahead, she becomes the victim of pranks and sabotage.
