‘Elite athletes aren’t born. They’re made.’
From a living icon of the Olympic Games – as both an athlete and now as a BBC broadcaster – Michael Johnson’s Gold Rush is a compelling analysis of the fascinating combination of psychological and personal qualities, as well as internal and external factors, that go to create an Olympic champion.
This exciting new book is based on Michael Johnson’s own experiences as an iconic four-time Olympic champion, and on the knowledge he has gleaned as a top-class coach and motivational speaker. It also features, uniquely, more than a dozen exclusive and insightful interviews with Olympic legends from across several different sports who between them have claimed more than 50 gold medals over the past 30 years.
Following his retirement from track & field, Johnson became a sports pundit with the BBC and has since established himself as one of the most popular and renowned sports broadcasters in the UK. He also writes a regular column for The Times and owns his own sports training facility, the Michael Johnson Performance Centre, in Texas.
Gold Rush will be released on September 15th. Please contact IMG Speakers at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212 774 6735 for additional information on booking Michael Johnson for your next event.
