Stephanie smiles as she's applauded by the crowd. The 13-year-old just won her first international title. Her coach Kelly embraces the gymnast as they both admire the gold metal they have worked so hard for. The girl is overloaded with accolades at the reception as the guests all want to take a picture with her. The more that is bestowed upon her, the more she realises what the expectations are.
