Mark is an Australian Olympic Gymnast that during New Year's Eve of 2000 (the year in which Olympic were held in Sydney) instead of enjoying the holiday, is practicing.

Mark is an Australian Olympic Gymnast working an trying to get fit for the next Olympics. Daniel works in the mines. They meet 3 years ago, they shared time together. Daniel loves mark no matter what what's them to be together bit mark just want to see what happen if he can compete in the Olympics. Every often Daniel takes time of to spend with mark but he is willing to wait. I wanted more to see what happens with them Olympics but it's ok still there is hope for them.
I liked Mark an Daniel and wanted to like the story as well...but I just didn't. The story was to unfinished. It felt more like a excerpt. That said I would definitely be interested in reading a longer work from this author as both MCs were real to me. Their points of view were interesting and 'real'.
I found this to be a rambling story with no cohesion or character development. The story flashed back and forth between the beginnings of the main character's relationship to the present. I've seen this done before successfully but in this case I was wondering what the point was and why I should care about these two characters.
