Description
This book ranks the 50 greatest records in sports while also taking a personal look at some of these amazing feats and the athletes behind them. Take Joe DiMaggio, for example, whose consecutive 56-game hitting streak is one of many records to beat in baseball, but some may not know that getting a daily hit became more important to Joe than eating, drinking, or sleeping. Then there is Soviet gymnast Larissa Latynina who has held the record for most Olympic medals (18) for 40 years and counting who managed to find time to have three children during her record-breaking quest. In Made To Be Broken , sports fanatics can relive the thrill of each record-breaking moment while getting an intimate look at each record holder and the specific stories behind their journey to make history and do something that's never been done before. The book also includes an exclusive DVD highlighting some of the more memorable moments in sports history.
