Back in the 1970s, Diana Nyad was the greatest long-distance swimmer in the world. After setting a world record circling Manhattan, Nyad became a prominent sports broadcaster, filing compelling reports for National Public Radio, ABC's Wide World of Sports, Fox Sports, and The New York Times. Nyad owns a fitness business, and is the author of a memoir titled Find a Way: One Untamed and Courageous Life which was longlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award 2016.
We're delighted to annouce that Damon Hill, Anna Kessel and Diana Nyad have been longlisted for the 2016 William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award — the world's longest established and most valuable literary sports-writing prize.
Offering exclusive insight into the astonishing and inspiring journeys of some of our greatest sportsmen and women and encompassing everything from cricket to Formula One to long-distance swimming, these are this year's essential books for sports fans.
Inspirational sporting reads that are guaranteed to have you reaching for your trainers.
