Standing Fast, Battles of a Champion by Michelle Akers
By Michelle Akers
Paperback – 224 pages
Describes how the road to an Olympic gold medal became an inspiration to others as she continually fought the consequences of her chronic disease, and what it meant to her and others once it was hers to share.
Michelle’s story is one of courage and determination. Soccer fans in particular will be interested in what she has to say, but even those who don’t appreciate the sport should be touched by what she’s endured.
I would recommend this book for any athlete, whether or not they are dealing with injuries or illness, and I would certainly recommend it for young girls to show them what it means to be a committed athlete.
