Description

Everyone knows Danny Powell was born to run. But no one knows Danny dreams of beating the fastest man on the planet. Until one day Danny accidentally lets it slip, and that's it. His ambition is out there - and everyone's laughing at him. Except, what if Danny could be the next 100m world champion? With the Olympic Games on his doorstep, there's only one way to find out. Will Danny's family and friends cheer him over that finishing line - and watch his dream come true? This title comes from an award-winning chief sports reporter for "The Times". Owen will be reporting on the Olympics for "The Times", lending even more authority as the author of this series in the lead-up to the Games. The 100m men's final is the one of the most popular Olympic events, and "Running for Gold" features non-fiction facts and figures woven into an inspiring fictional story.
