Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book was bought for my husband who is very interested in a variety of sports. I understand he has found it very comprehensive with a number of interesting tales some of which he already knew.

From a personal viewpoint it was particularly interesting to read the account of Ann Brightwell formerly Packer. Ann taught at Coombe Girls School which is in our locality at the time of her competing at the Tokyo Olympics in 1964. Her fiancée Robbie taught at Tiffin Boys at the time which is in Kingston near our home in New Malden. Their individual success made a deep impact at the time and we have had the privilege of facilitating Ann coming back to Coombe Girls School to Yrs 7 & 8 in 2012 and Robbie and Ann came back this October to Tiffin Boys on the 50th anniversaryof their success. They are so able and modest.
