There are those who have disguised themselves in order to play sport and those who have given it up in order to study, those who used their fame to fight for the rights of all and those who fled the war to fulfil their dream of going to the Olympics. These are the outstanding sportsmen and sportswomen who have proved their worth not only in a sports hall, stadium or swimming pool but also (and especially) in everyday life.
Federico Meda's words and Serena Mabilia's illustrations guide us through the stories of 15 champions, chosen from among the many possible to represent as many disciplines: out-of-category sportsmen and women, better than the best ones. From rugby to surfing, via table tennis and ice skating, we get to know outstanding athletes who are sometimes not so well known to the general public, and their exciting stories of life and sport.
