Face To Face With The Best Of Australian Sport
Here is a humorous, insightful and engaging collection of what sports writer Peter FitzSimons calls sportraits, profiles of our sporting greats.
As Australia primes itself for the first Olympic Games of the new millennium, FitzSimons turns his razor-sharp sights on a veritable who's who of sporting heroes from the last 150 years - and others who will seize our hearts and imaginations in the years to come: from Victor Trumper, Sir Donald Bradman, Roy Cazaly, Phar Lap and Mark Edmondson to John Bertrand, Duncan Armstrong, Ian Roberts, Zoe Goss, Shane Warne and Heather Turland.
If you have ever cheered an Aussie home, or shed a tear after an Australian victory or defeat, this book is for you.
