One Foot on the Podium (eBook) – iTunes

If you’re likely to buy only one book this year, make sure it’s a ripper. Make it one about a boy from the bush who’s hell-bent on becoming an elite sportsman. Be sure it’s a true story, with ups and downs and plenty of fun times you can relate to. An inspiring insight into triumph over adversity probably won’t go astray either.

The one book you should buy this year tells the true story of a boy with a couple of missing body-parts and a very naughty streak that gets him in and out of trouble with his parents, school teachers and the police on his journey to the peak of Paralympic athletic competition. The one book you should definitely buy this year is One Foot On The Podium, by Don Elgin (with Kevin Moloney).

Description

Born without the lower half of his left leg, young Don Elgin never considered himself disabled until he was in high school – and even then, he had to be convinced. His story, of a boy from the bush who battled the odds and finally stepped onto the podium as a medallist at the Sydney Paralympics, is one of absolute inspiration. Driven by an inherited sense of grit, determination and pure guts, Don overcomes an abundance of obstacles to rise to the top of the sporting heap. His life’s philosophy tells us that success is not a birthright – it’s earned.
