Be inspired by Tatyana McFadden, who spent her early years without a wheelchair and having to crawl on the floor of her orphanage but went on to win 17 Paralympic medals. Learn from legendary wrestler Kaori Icho, who won 189 contests in a row to go undefeated for 13 years straight. Whether you already live for sports or are just starting to catch the bug, this book is full of ideas and tips to help you think and play like a pro.
