The coolest heroes are the ones who are brave enough to take action off the field too.
The biggest sporting stars are major celebrities. They have masses of fans who’ll cheer them on whatever may happen. That gives them an opportunity to make an impact on the world around them. Some of the biggest stars choose to use that opportunity. They want to make the world a better place. And they choose to do so in different ways.
In this book readers will meet heroes like Muhammad Ali, who was jailed for opposing the Vietnam War, Marcus Rashford who fights for free school meals in the United Kingdom, and Ingrid Olsdatter Vestby, the first female ski-jumper, who paved the way for other women.
The book tells the story of fifty heroes in a variety of different sports from across the globe.
