Women Who Win: Female Athletes on Being the Best

by

Women Who Win: Female Athletes on Being the Best Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Whether it's surfer Jamilah Star riding an unprecedented fifty-foot wave, Olympic marathoner Deena Kastor winning the bronze in 2004, or top-ranked climber Lynn Hill facing down a tough climb at Joshua Tree, one thing is certain: these women have game.

What's more, these amazing athletes capture our imagination. How do they do it? What motivates them to win and to become the best in their sport?

In Women Who Win, adventure writer Lisa Taggart takes us behind the scenes, deep into the training regimens and the ultimate victories, to see what makes these women — and some of their fellow female athletes — tick. Whether their sport is soccer, cycling, mountain biking, or volleyball, these athletes will inspire you to pursue your dreams, whether it's running a marathon or catching your first wave.
