Sonia O'Sullivan Summary

Sonia O'Sullivan: Great Irish Sports Stars by Natasha Mac a'Bhaird


'Sonia walked to the start line with the other athletes, her tummy full of butterflies. She could feel the eyes of the crowd upon them. Sixty-five thousand people, all here to watch their race. She had dreamt about this moment for so long, and now it was here.'

As a little girl, playing with her friends in Cobh, Co. Cork, Sonia O'Sullivan was known as the fastest runner. When she joined a running club and started to win races, she began to dream of the Olympic Games. Through her talent, dedication and her ability to get back up and dust herself down when things went wrong. Sonia went from an ordinary girl who loved to run to an extraordinary world class athlete.

The story of one of Ireland's greatest ever athletes -- and a dream made real.

Sonia O'Sullivan Reviews


* Irish Examiner *

what young readers will hopefully draw from Mac A'Bhaird's new children's biography of Sonia is inspiration. The everyday ordinariness of her early days and the importance of the sweetshops, friendships - and the occasional bag of greasy chips, make this a very human story of the power of determination, which may help light the spark the fires determined athletes of the future ... a welcome addition to the equally enlightening titles on Cora Staunton and Colm 'Gooch' Cooper in the O'Brien Press series of Great Irish Sports Stars
