Editors Note From Jackie Robinson to Billie Jean King, a cavalcade of sports heroism celebrating virtues that transcend winning and losing Explaining why athletics, at their best, can be so inspirational, this is a history of sports that is littered with tales of exemplary courage: athletes pushing their bodies through the pain barrier, or defying career-threatening injuries, in quest of victory. Their heroics have inspired generations of athletes and fans. But courage is as much a moral as a physical attribute, and some of the most inspiring stories here feature men and women of principle who have challenged authority, fought racism and sexism, or simply had the guts to confess to weaknesses that went against the grain of their profession. Ben Hogan, Jackie Robinson, Denis Compton, Billie Jean King, Derek Redmond, and more inspiring heroes are included.
