Dreams Do Come True tells the inspirational story of one of Britain´s golden girls from London 2012. Great Britain´s finest woman rower had one final career target to achieve and, on 3 August 2012, on the water at Eton Dorney, she - and Anna Watkins - beat three other pairs to win the gold in the Women´s Double Sculls at the London Olympics. After winning silver in 2000, 2004 and 2008, Katherine Grainger could finally call herself an Olympic champion. Katherine´s story is a remarkable one - proof that nice people can be winners, and that dedication and hard work pay off. As well as her achievements in athletics, Katherine has degrees from Glasgow and Edinburgh Universities and a PhD from London, in subjects as diverse as law, philosophy and murder. She has packed an awful lot into her 37 years, and in this autobiography she tells her life story: the highs and lows, and her ultimate moment of glory in front of thousands of home fans. 1.

Citius, Altius, Fortius (Faster, Higher, Stronger) is the motto of the International Olympic Committee. After listening to Les Woodland´s The Olympics´ 50 Craziest Stories the listener might wonder if the motto should be Sillier, Loonier, Crazier. There is the gentle rower who was winning his race when he stopped his scull to avoid scattering a mother duck and her ducklings - we´ll let you listen to the book to find out how he did - and the American socialites who showed up for a golf game in Paris and accidentally ended up in the Olympic golf contest. There was so much confusion that year they never learned one of them had become Olympic champion. Oh, and the men´s Olympic golf champion had actually journeyed to Paris to play tennis. Shooting live pigeons was an event in the 1900 Olympics, but there´s no mention today of the competition out of embarrassment over the 300 dead and maimed birds that revulsed the spectators. We can´t forget the Jamaican bobsled team nor the Russian KGB colonel who rigged the scoring in fencing and managed to create an international incident. They are all in The Olympics´ 50 Craziest Stories, along with dozens more athletes who managed to attain fame they would rather not have earned. In addition to the 50 stories of competitors behaving badly, or at least oddly, Les Woodland has sprinkled collections of interesting and sometimes improbable Olympics facts throughout, making The Olympics´ 50 Craziest Stories fun from cover to cover. As the author of 26 books, Les Woodland knows how to tell a story and here he´s in fine form. Join him in his trip to the crazy side of sports. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David L. Stanley.
