Martin Fourcade - Un dernier tour de piste by , Summary

LE CARNET DE BORD D’UN IMMENSE CHAMPION près son triomphe aux Jeux olympiques de 2018 (trois médailles d’or), Martin Fourcade peine à retrouver ses sensations. La saison post-olympique s’apparente à un calvaire, au point qu’il se demande s’il n’a pas perdu la flamme et les qualités mentales et physiques qui ont fait de lui le plus grand biathlète de l’histoire. Alors, à l’aube de ce qui deviendra sa dernière saison, il entame une opération de reconquête sans certitude, mais avec une immense détermination. Un dernier tour de piste est le carnet de bord touchant, sincère et circonstancié de cette renaissance : du premier jour de compétition de présaison jusqu’au franchissement de l’ultime ligne d’arrivée, épilogue d’une saison haletante, point final d’une carrière en or. On découvre l’homme, le passeur, le père derrière le champion. Et on comprend encore mieux comment et pourquoi il est devenu une légende du sport.

Martin Fourcade by Martin Fourcade Summary

À 28 ans, le biathlète français est d’ores et déjà une légende de son sport mais aussi un des plus grands champions de l’histoire du sport français et le plus médaillé au sport d’hiver. Aussi précis au tir que rapide et endurant sur ses skis, le champion né dans les Pyrénées orientales s’est forgé au fil des ans un palmarès unique avec 2 médailles d’or et deux médailles d’argent aux JO d’hiver, 11 championnats du monde et 63 victoires en Coupe du monde. Et il va s’attaquer aux JO de Pyeongchang en Corée du Sud avec un appétit de géant. Dans ce livre qu’il a lui-même écrit, il revient sur les secrets de sa méthode, son rapport à la nature et n’élude pas les sujets qui fâchent comme les soupçons de dopage de ses adversaires russes.

Martin Fourcade. Moje poslední sezóna by Martin Fourcade Summary

Martin Fourcade je francouzskou legendou, která sedm let vládla biatlonovému světu. Sedm let vyhrával, v průměru každý druhý závod stál na nejvyšším stupni. Zvykl si. V sezoně 2018–2019 ale zažil něco, na co nebyl připravený. Přestalo se mu dařit. Nechápal, co se děje, tělo zkrátka nereagovalo tak, jak byl do té doby zvyklý. A nedivil se jen on, v šoku byl celý biatlonový svět. Zažil obrovský propad. Sáhl si hodně hluboko. Na konci neúspěšné sezony to ale nechtěl vzdát a začal se připravovat na sezonu další, která měla být, aniž to tehdy sám tušil, jeho poslední. Tato nová kniha Martina Fourcada je intimním deníkem, který si psal během uplynulé sezony. Procházíme s ním jednotlivými zastávkami Světového poháru a nahlédnout můžeme i do jeho soukromí. Zažíváme s ním hlubokou radost a pokoru, když se mu daří zase vyhrávat, uvědomuje si, jak bral svá vítězství samozřejmě. Vrací se na vrchol a mnohem víc si váží všeho, co dosáhl. I když ho na konci dělí od posledního velkého křišťálového globu jen dva body, poslední závod své kariéry vyhrává. Odchází jako král. Král je mrtev, ať žije král. Martin Fourcade s námi na konci své hvězdné kariéry sdílí deník, který si psal během poslední sezony. Je doplněný barevnými ilustracemi 14leté ruské fanynky Oksany Pinčukové.

Above the Clouds by Kilian Jornet Summary

"Kilian Jornet is the most dominating endurance athlete of his generation."—NEW YORK TIMES "Inspiring and humbling"— ALEX HONNOLD The most accomplished mountain runner of all time contemplates his record-breaking climbs of Mount Everest in this profound memoir—an intellectual and spiritual journey that moves from the earth’s highest peak to the soul’s deepest reaches. Kilian Jornet has broken nearly every mountaineering record in the world and twice been named National Geographic Adventurer of the Year. In 2018 he summitted Mount Everest twice in one week—without the help of bottled oxygen or ropes. As he recounts a life spent studying and ascending the greatest peaks on earth, Jornet ruminates on what he has found in nature—simplicity, freedom, and spiritual joy—and offers a poetic yet clearheaded assessment of his relationship to the mountain . . . at times his opponent, at others, his greatest inspiration.

The Rodchenkov Affair by Grigory Rodchenkov Summary

***Winner of the William Hill Sports Book of the Year, 2020 - the inside story of the Russian doping programme by the man behind it all*** One of the Financial Times's 'Fifty people who shaped the decade' 'The biggest sports scandal the world has ever seen' In 2015, Russia's Anti-Doping Centre was suspended by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) following revelations of an elaborate state-sponsored doping programme at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Involving a nearly undetectable steroid delivery system known as 'Duchesse cocktail', tampering and switching of urine samples, and a complex state-sanctioned cover-up, the programme was masterminded by Grigory Rodchenkov. The Rodchenkov Affair tells the full, unadulterated story that was first glimpsed in Bryan Fogel's award-winning documentary and still continues to captivate and shock the world. Charting the author's childhood growing up under the Iron Curtain, his first encounter with doping as a 22-year-old student athlete at Moscow State University, and his subsequent career working for the Soviet Olympic Committee, this breathtakingly candid journey reveals a rigged system of flawed individuals, brazen deceit and impossible moral choices.

Brave Enough by Jessie Diggins,Todd Smith Summary

Travel with Olympic gold medalist Jessie Diggins on her compelling journey from America’s heartland to international sports history, navigating challenges and triumphs with rugged grit and a splash of glitter Pyeongchang, February 21, 2018. In the nerve-racking final seconds of the women’s team sprint freestyle race, Jessie Diggins dug deep. Blowing past two of the best sprinters in the world, she stretched her ski boot across the finish line and lunged straight into Olympic immortality: the first ever cross-country skiing gold medal for the United States at the Winter Games. The 26-year-old Diggins, a four-time World Championship medalist, was literally a world away from the small town of Afton, Minnesota, where she first strapped on skis. Yet, for all her history-making achievements, she had never strayed far from the scrappy 12-year-old who had insisted on portaging her own canoe through the wilderness, yelling happily under the unwieldy weight on her shoulders: “Look! I’m doing it!” In Brave Enough, Jessie Diggins reveals the true story of her journey from the American Midwest into sports history. With candid charm and characteristic grit, she connects the dots from her free-spirited upbringing in the woods of Minnesota to racing in the bright spotlights of the Olympics. Going far beyond stories of races and ribbons, she describes the challenges and frustrations of becoming a serious athlete; learning how to push through and beyond physical and psychological limits; and the intense pressure of competing at the highest levels. She openly shares her harrowing struggle with bulimia, recounting both the adversity and how she healed from it in order to bring hope and understanding to others experiencing eating disorders. Between thrilling accounts of moments of triumph, Diggins shows the determination it takes to get there—the struggles and disappointments, the fun and the hard work, and the importance of listening to that small, fierce voice: I can do it. I am brave enough.
