Unsung

by Alexis James | 01 August 2022
PAPERBACK
Unsung offers a fascinating and illuminating insight behind the scenes of professional sport, meeting the unheralded heroes without whom this multi-billion-pound industry would not be what it is today. A sporting compendium of the unheard, the unsaid, and the unusual, Unsung shines a rare spotlight on the integral men and women in the shadows, interwoven into the fabric of sport. Find out how an F1 pit crew condenses years of training into three seconds of race-day precision. Hear from the top boxing referees whose judgement calls prove the difference between crowning a champion and calling an ambulance. Meet the trigger-happy athletics starters who can break as many dreams as they make. And learn how snowmaking scientists go to war with Mother Nature at every Winter Olympics. Away from the headlines generated by sport's biggest stars, these previously uncelebrated characters share previously untold tales of intrigue, ambition and dedication. Unsung introduces the sports stars you don't know, telling the stories you can't miss.
