Product Overview

Ever wonder what it takes to raise a champion-in sports, in work, or in life?

Discover the secrets of triumphant parenting--and raising a child who excels.

Summer Sanders won more medals than any other American swimmer at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. After retiring, she has continued to charm America as a TV commentator and media celebrity. And wherever she goes, parents ask: what gave her the drive to consistently give all she had, no matter what the challenge? How did she develop her self-assurance and raw courage? What did her parents do right?

Now Summer Sanders provides compelling, surprisingly simple answers for all parents--whether your child is gifted in sports, in school, or the arts--from the unique perspective of a child who became the world's best in her field. Enriched by advice from a host of other Olympic athletes, Champions Are Raised, Not Born reveals what truly develops a champion.

How to recognize a child's true talent.

How to provide family support (even if parents are divorced).

How to nurture mental toughness and self-confidence.

How to encourage your child to become a team player.

How to help your child realize her dream without sacrificing her childhood.

Winning, losing, and getting both right in life.
