Synopses & Reviews
The US Olympic Committee gave each Summer 2004 athlete this book for showing how the Games inspire contestants, trainers, fans, and nations alike. Its mythology and sports stories offer metaphors for living with passion, compassion, focus, and fairness.
Weaves together myths and fables with modern anecdotes, curiosities, and stories to emphasize the transcendent element that uplifts athlete, trainer, and spectator alike, anticipating the nostalgic return of the Games to Greece in 2004.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 250-252) and index.
