ggf. zzgl. Versand

What makes some men drive themselves to succeed in their chosen sport, no matter how daunting the odds? And what are the struggles that victory almost inevitably brings? Meet the swiftest and saddest cyclist of his time, a man whose craving for speed was outstripped by a terrible urge toward self-annihilation. Try to understand the most accomplished high-school runner in American history, whose long-distance records still astound and who, a few years later, abruptly abandoned his wife and three small children. Learn about the briefly glorious life of the leading scorer in Division I college basketball, one of the inner city’s great success stories . . . while it lasted. This superbly narrated and insightful audiobook follows the paths of thirteen ravaged champions in solitary crafts such as cycling and running, bowling and boxing, hiking and golf. These men work at and master their sports, driven only by a burning need to prove themselves. Movingly detailed here are their painful journeys to grace, and their eventual realization that no victory brings lasting happiness. In short, here is the human experience, told in seconds and miles, scorecards and records. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Graham Corrigan.

Above the Line: Lessons in Leadership and Life ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Lessons on leadership and team building from Ohio State's head football coach, drawing heavily on the 2014 season and his team's remarkable run to the championship in the face of adversity. Since he took over at Bowling Green 14 years ago, Urban Frank Meyer III has established himself as one of the elite coaches in the annals of college football. With three national championships and a record of 142-26, he has achieved remarkable results with many teams. But it is Meyer's recent work at The Ohio State University that has elevated him into the realm of such iconic coaching names as Paul (Bear) Bryant, Knute Rockne, and OSU's own Woody Hayes. Never was that work more successful than in the 2014 season, which ended with Meyer's Buckeyes capturing the inaugural College Football Playoff Championship with a 42-20 victory over Oregon. That the triumph came with a third-string quarterback at the helm - and after OSU had suffered a brutal early season loss and endured the tragic loss of a teammate - only made the achievement that much more extraordinary. How did Ohio State, a school many thought did not even deserve to be in the playoffs, end up at the summit of college football? In Above the Line, Urban Meyer answers this question and many more. Pulling back the curtain on the high-profile, high-pressure world he operates in, he offers listeners a groundbreaking game plan for creating a culture of success that engages and inspires the people around them - the very game plan he followed every day in the Buckeyes' historic 2014 season. A student of psychology long before he became a coach, Meyer believes that trust is the bedrock of great achievements and healthy relationships and explains how to build it, step by step - whether in a team, a family, or a Fortune 500 company. 1.

Sailor Young

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Harding Isaac "Sailor" Young (February 5, 1876, Leyton, Essex December 12, 1964, Rochford, Essex) was a cricketer who played for Essex and England. Young was a left-arm medium-pace bowler and a capable lower-order batsman. His bowling achieved considerable turn off the wicket, and was described in Wisden as having "a deceptive curl". Young's cricketing successes in minor matches led Essex to buy him out of the Royal Navy. He played a few games in 1898, but came to prominence early the following year, when he took eleven wickets for 74 runs against a powerful Australian touring side and gave Essex a surprising victory by 126 runs.

David Brown (Cricketer born 1942)

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. David John Brown is a former English cricketer who played in twenty six Tests from 1965 to 1969. Cricket writer Colin Batemen described Brown as a "rangy, popular paceman... gutsy determinaton and uncomplaining effort". Educated at Queen Mary's Grammar School, Brown made his Warwickshire debut in 1961. A dependable seam bowler in the English tradition, Brown used his full 6' 4" to extract bounce from any wicket, an attribute which enabled him to be as effective on hard wickets on tour as he was on green pitches at home. He overcame injury to take 1,165 first-class wickets and play regularly for England in the late 1960s, taking 79 wickets with a best return of 5 for 42. His most famous bowling was in the Third Test at Sydney in the 1965-66 Ashes series, where he took 5/63, forced Australia to follow on and England won their biggest victory down under for fifty years

Camper Van Beethoven: Telephone Free Landslide ...
22,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Wiederveröffentlichung des Debütalbums von einer der einflussreichsten Bands der Achtziger. Mit ihrer bizarren Mischung aus Folk, Country, Ska, Tex-Mex, 60s Psychedelia und Rock'n'Roll gelten Camper Van Beethoven noch heute als eine der einflussreichsten Bands der Achtziger Jahre. Zusammen mit Bands wie den Replacements, Hüsker Dü, Minutemen, Sonic Youth oder den Meat Puppets strebten Camper Van Beethoven eine konsequente Neudefinition von Rock/Pop an. Ihre Strategie lautete: Vielfalt. Bewaffnet mit Violine, Mandoline und Bläsern, einer eklektischen Offenheit für sämtliche Musiken dieser Welt sowie einem beissenden Sarkasmus setzten sie an, die gültigen Regeln und Codes von Coolness und Rock'n'Roll ausser Kraft zu setzen, ohne dabei zu vergessen, wie Rock sich anfühlen sollte. Das Debutalbum von Camper van Beethoven 'Telephone Free Landslide Victory' erschien im Juni 1985. Das Album, das unter anderem den Camper-Klassiker 'Take The Skinheads Bowling' und das Black Flag-Cover 'Wasted' enthält, wurde ein richtiger Hit bei den College Radios, tauchte aber ebenso in den Top 10-Listen renommierter Musikkritiker auf. Die Wiederveröffentlichung enthält Bonustracks.
