Image of item
With the phenomenal success of the England Football team at the Euros 2022, this book meets the renewed interest in women in sport. It provides a fascinating overview of the history of women in sport from centuries past to the present day, demonstrating the leaps forward that sportswomen have taken since 1945, as well as an inspiring account of great female Paralympians. The 25 profiles of incredible female pioneers and legends evidence the grit and determination required to challenge discrimination, to break records and demolish outdated notions of the weaker sex. The recent investment in women's sports, as seen for football, rugby and cricket, has driven greater popularity and success. This book also includes a wonderful selection of interviews with over 25 women competing in a wide range of sports today, as well as leading figures in the industry, coaches, referees, presenters, and broadcasters. -- Provided by publisher.
