About the Book

"The important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning, but taking part. The essential thing in life is not conquering, but fighting well."
-Baron Pierre de Coubertin, founder of the modern Olympic Games

TRACKING HEROES is about the dreams, goals, challenges, and values of thirteen track and field stars who sought the best in themselves, honored their sport, and enriched their world. Through these profiles you will meet athletes whose determination, drive, character, and courage led to success in sports and in their lives-men and women who overcame personal obstacles, experienced the excitement of competition, and savored the satisfaction of achievement.
