First Sentence
How could Dara Torres-at age 33 and having been out of swimming for seven years-return to the sport in 2000 after only 14 months of training and swim significantly faster than ever before in each of her events, setting two American records and taking five Olympic medals (two of them gold on world-record relays)? Read the first page

4.0 out of 5 stars Vital and comprehensive 9 Mar 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
A cross-section of successful coaches hvae been asked to write specific chapters. An even better approach would have been for ALL to have contributed across the board. One for every coach all the same; I got this to support my UKCC/ASA senior club coach certificate. I have the book so may buy the e-book too so that I have it poolside on my Kindle.
