Great Athletes of the 21st Century
This new 3-volume set offers comprehensive coverage of today's top athletes in all sports around the world. Over 400 informative biographies are organized in major categories that include: Football; Baseball; Olympic Sports; Basketball; Golf & Tennis; Boxing & Soccer; and Racing and Individual Sports, each with its own indexes and appendixes.
This new edition is designed to act as an update and a supplement to the Great Athletes 13-volume set published in 2009, focusing on contemporary athletes at the top of their game along with rising stars who are just coming onto the scene.
Biographies provide information in five sections: Early Life; Road to Excellence; Emerging Champion; Continuing the Story; and Summary. Most of these 3-4 page essays include a photograph of the athlete profiled and a table of career stats, awards, honors, and other milestones.
Although the focus is on sports that are popular in North America, there is considerable coverage on sports and athletes from around the world. Biographies include such greats as Michael Phelps, Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, Tom Brady, LeBron James, Payton Manning, Albert Pujols, Serena Williams, Usain Bolt, Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter, Tim Duncan, and so many more.
