Higher Than the Eagle Soars: A Path to Everest

Описание: High wild places have dominated Stephen Venables' life and now he has written a full autobiography which explores how and - more importantly - why he became a mountaineer, and reveals a series of never-recorded adventures on four continents.

Плыть, ехать, бежать. Путь к олимпийскому пьедесталу в триатлоне

Описание: О чем эта книга Не удивительно ли - в одной английской семье выросли сразу два олимпийских призера по триатлону: Алистер и Джонатан Браунли, золото и бронза Лондона-2012. Причем британский климат совершенно не располагает к круглогодичным тренировкам на открытом воздухе и на открытой воде, а ребята не были атлетами от рождения. Но с детства занимались циклическими видами спорта, подзадоривая друг друга, а родители их в этом поддерживали. И когда один в 14 лет сказал "Я буду олимпийским чемпионом", второй не отстал. Здесь весь их путь: совмес... Читать далее →
