From the Publisher:

Commemorating the 30th anniversary of the prestigious Women’s Sports Foundation, SUPERWOMEN brings together 100 outstanding champion athletes, from Olympic medalists and hopefuls to X-Gamers and competitors in the Special Olympics. Included are sports superstars such as Chris Evert, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Picabo Street, Bonnie Blair, Dara Torres, Sarah Hughes, and Anita DeFrantz. Also included are less recognizable, but equally fascinating, athletes such as Loretta Claiborne, a marathoner born with mental and physical handicaps; Michelle Wie, a 13-year old golf phenom; and the remarkable Aimee Mullin, who with prosthetic legs ran in track in college and broke records in the Paralympic Games. These extraordinary women, beautifully photographed by Jodi Buren, offer their own stories of triumph, courage, and determination—allowing us a glimpse of the personalities and spirit behind the long lists of athletic achievements.

About the Author:

Jodi Buren is a portrait photographer whose work has appeared in Sports Illustrated, Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, and Life. While on assignment for Sports Illustrated, Jodi was moved by the spirit and energy of a team of women basketball players and their fans. Inspired by this passion for women in sport, Ms. Buren began shooting SuperWomen. She lives in a 1790 farmhouse in Westchester, New York with her husband and son.

Donna Lopiano, a nine-time All-American in softball and the former Director of Women's Athletics at the University of Texas, Austin, is currently the Executive Director of the Women's Sports Foundation, a charitable educational organization dedicated to ensuring equal access to participation and leadership opportunities for all girls and women in sports and fitness.
