About this title


Profiles notable Olympic athletes who overcame the odds to win gold medals, including Jesse Owens, Shelley Mann, and Kerri Strug

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-Donkin focuses on six Olympians: Jesse Owens, Shelley Mann, Mamo Wolde, Daley Thompson, Jennifer Capriati, and Kerri Strug. Each athlete's moment of glory is described in a short story and illustrated with crisp, full-color photographs. Sidebars offer interesting facts about the Games. Particularly intriguing are the descriptions of the sports in which these six competed. The different strokes in swimming, the positioning of a shot putter, the technique of smashing in tennis, all are described. It is unfortunate that the book does not have an index and that the table of contents is vague, making it difficult to find the individual athletes. Unsuitable for reports, this is a book for young browsers.
