Chasing Water: Elegy Of An Olympian
CLEARANCE ITEM - Final sale!
Anthony Ervin and Constantine Markides are the recipients of the 2018 Buck Dawson Author Award presented by the International Swimming Hall of Fame.
Here Ervin and swim trainer and journalist Markides combine talents to create a biography that is a part first-hand narrative by Ervin, with Markides filling in the details and providing context. The formula works, pulling readers into Ervin's experience of the thrill of victory and search for meaning... Featuring more depth, breadth, truth, and the effects of reckless choices than found in traditional athlete biographies, this gripping account is just in time for the gear up to the Rio 2016 Olympics. Readers will understand the psyche and life of elite athletes as never before, then cheer Ervin on in his attempt to make another Olympic team."
