Usain Bolt Paperback
by Roy Apps
Illustrated by Chris King
Part of the Edge: Dream to Win series
Usain had a dream, he wanted to play cricket. But an eagle-eyed coach spotted his sprinting talent at school in Jamaica.
Usain soon discovered that the path to becoming a pro-athlete is tough going, and if he was to fulfil his destiny and become the FASTEST MAN ON EARTH, he was going to need every ounce of determination, plus a great sense of humour.
This is the story of Usain's discovery, his first athletic events and the Olympic Games. Dream to Win: Usain Bolt is written by expert author Roy Apps for kids with a reading age of 7 (but could also be enjoyed by pre-teens) and illustrated with black-and-white artwork.
The stories focus on top athletes and sport personalities, with each dramatic story bringing to life the skill, determination and luck needed to break through into top level competition.
