Book Description

About the Author

“Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them: A desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, and they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.

The road to being crowned a champion in any sport is long and arduous. Putting in long years of daily rigorous practice Kapil Dev, Sania Mirza Vishwanathan Anand, Vijendra Kumar and innumerable other champions have all struggles hard to reach where they are today. This book brings together the life-stories of all the Indian men and women who have excelled in sports and achieved the status of champion.
