Description

After injury prevented her from competing in the 2008 Olympic Games, Jessica Ennis fought back to become the 2012 Olympic gold medal winner in the heptathlon. Read her story from her childhood years right up to when she crossed the finish line in her final event in London, 2012. It takes blood, sweat and tears to get to the top of any sport, and these short, inspirational biographies show just how tough it can be. Focusing on top athletes and sport personalities, each dramatic story brings to life the skill, determination and luck needed to break through into top level competition. This title is published by Franklin Watts EDGE, which produces a range of books to get children reading with confidence. EDGE - for books children can't put down.
