In addition to this inspiring novel the book also features non-fiction facts and figures woven into the story.This title comes from an award-winning chief sports reporter for The Times. Owen will be reporting on the Olympics for The Times, lending even more authority as the author of this series in the lead-up to the Games. The 100m men's final is one of the most popular Olympic events.
