Sinopsis:

The 1984 Olympic marathon winner recounts the turbulent course of her sports career, discusses her training methods and racing strategy, and reveals the drive to excel--and its costs--that has propelled her to victory

From Library Journal:

Benoit was a gold medal winner in the first Olympics' women's marathon in 1984. The story of her rise is almost a textbook lesson in athletic achievement. As a youngster in Maine, she engaged in a variety of sportstennis, baseball, field hockey, and skiing. Ultimately, she settled on a running career when an accident ended her skiing at age 15. She attributes her success to hard work and supportive friends, coaches, and parents who taught her that "winning was neither everything nor the only thing." This is a straightforward American success story devoid of overly controversial or sensational subject matter. Libraries with an eye toward the upcoming Olympic year may wish to add. William H. Hoffman, Ft. Myers-Lee Cty. P.L., Fla.
