Olympic Dreams - Venus Romaeo

Venus Romaeo is featured in BBC's Olympic Dreams

Age 12, Gymnastics

The young superstar comes from quite a family - older brother Romeo is a Welsh champion boxer and sister Angel is another gymnast.

Venus is the current British champion in her age group, as well as the British schools champion.

London 2012 is her real dream, but it's no wonder she's a rising star, spending up to 28 hours a week in training with coach Tracey Skirton.

Her three youngest siblings Achilles, Isus and Caesar are still a bit too small for sporting competition but watch this space!
