The book Olympic Dream is about a kid named Doug Cannan. He's a fourteen year-old boy and is in the eight grade. Doug's the goalie for his school hockey team. Slowly he's growing into a self confident person. Doug plays video games all the time at an arcade across the street from his house. Sadly, he has kids call him `'wide body'' which he doesn't like and it hurts his feelings. Doug lives in a small town somewhere in the United States. The time that this story took place in was in the 1990's. In Doug's family there are his mom, dad, and his sister,that is a lot older than him. Doug's older sister, Kate, is getting married to Terry. Terry's friend, Red, was in town for their wedding. Red almost made the U.S.A. Cycling Team, and he loves to ride for fun. When the arcade across the street burned down, Doug needed something to keep him busy during the summer. Doug asked Red if he could go to the cycling club with Red. Once Doug arrived at the club, he noticed that all the guys who did cycling were fit. He got on the bike and started to ride down the track. On the downhill and even parts of the track, it was easy for him, but on the uphill climbs, it was difficult. As doug kept practicing, the more he enjoyed it. Again his weight was a factor in the hard parts of the rides, but he still liked it when he finished his workout. The first couple of races were a little disappointing. As Doug trained until he couldn't do anymore, it paid off. When Doug went to more races and did better and better, something amazing happened. He was accepted to participate in the State Championships. He won all because he trained and trained.
