Synopsis

The Little Book of TEAM GB is the latest in Carlton Books' best-selling series of inspirational and humorous quotes on a wide variety of topics. There are 175 quotes from athletes of all shapes and sizes on their Olympic successes, aspirations and, occasionally, failure, recalling their efforts and what it took qualify for the Olympic Games. Some quotes are well known, such as an exhausted Steve Redgrave telling an interviewer after his fourth gold medal row, "I've had it. If anyone sees me near a boat they can shoot me." (thankfully no one accepted the invitation before his fifth gold medal!), others less so, but they will provide inspiration for budding athletes and bring back warm memories for many others. Come July and August 2012, there will, no doubt, be hundreds more to add to this collection.
