What started as a few passionate blogs about the 2016 Olympics has blossomed into a full-length account, now available in a paperback print version as well as a digital download. I’ll even sign it, if you like!
Outside the Rio Spotlight tells the tales of a dozen athletes—record-breakers, notable pioneers, and all-around thrilling competitors—overlooked in the prime-time TV coverage obsessed with sprinters, soccer legacies, and “angry faces.” These are stories of courage and American excellence at its peak, centering on the lesser-known sports like judo, rowing, BMX, and fencing.
Told in the style of 16 Days of Glory, the book details the tournaments for these athletes who compete-–with little funding and even less hype–for the love of their sport and the honor of their country, which is the essence of the Olympics.
These athletes did it whether anyone was watching or not.
