With the Winter Olympics almost upon us, many young athletes are going to be glued to their TVs (or computers/tablets/phones), dreaming of the day they might find themselves on a podium. But it takes many years of hard work to realize a dream of going to the Olympics, and for most, it is only a dream.
THE 4 YEAR OLYMPIAN, by Jeremiah Brown, is the story of a rower who not only found his calling after a troubled youth, but worked hard enough to get himself to the Olympics in just four years. It seems impossible, but this story is bound to inspire and encourage.
