Product description


Stunningly illustrated and illuminating stories about inspiring athletes. -- Chelsey Pippin ― Buzzfeed

It's a gorgeous book, full of top notch production values. The text is clear and concise but full of interesting details. The illustrations are bold and impactful and bright and busy and, above all, exciting. All the women look wonderfully powerful. Such care has been taken that Women in Sport is a book you'll return to over and over again. I hope it inspires a whole new generation of girls to take up sport and succeed in it. ― Bookbag

Women in Sport is a sensational successor to last year's Women in Science...women who trained and competed with grit are celebrated in this beautiful compendium. -- Imogen Russell Williams ― Guardian

So many women's achievements in sport have been overlooked in favour of men's over the years, so it's a great pleasure to see these 50 women celebrated in this marvellous follow up to Rachel Ignotofsky's Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World...The text is engaging and factual, represented clearly and with a focus on inspiring and empowering readers. It's great that we're now seeing these specialised, themed women collections, and exciting that children's knowledge is being expanded to include so many strong and fearless athletes. ― Booktrust

Inspirational. ― South Wales Evening Post (Swansea)

A sensational successor to last year's Women in Science. ― The Guardian

Book Description

This book is filled with stories of women who achieved their greatest dreams - women who pushed themselves to the limit, did the impossible and became legends.
