You’ll meet a one-legged mountain-climber, a surfing survivor, backward runners, an elephant polo player, and champions and All-Stars across the athletic spectrum. And don’t miss the fifty-two quizzes to test your knowledge and memory. Most important, you’ll discover points and principles from the Bible and sports to apply to competition and life.
