Run Like A Girl 50 Extraordinary and Inspiring Sportswomen Synopsis

If you’ve ever heard the words “You run like a girl!” then it’s time to smile and put your game face on. Stand tall and be proud because they’re right. You can be strong, brave, fierce, ambitious, resilient and tough… you be all these things and be them LIKE A GIRL.

All over the world, there are female athletes breaking barriers, pushing limits and achieving amazing things, but where did their journeys begin? And what challenges did they have to overcome to get where they are today? This revised and updated version of Run Like a Girl presents 50 inspirational biographies of the world’s top female athletes., from boxing superstar Nicola Adams to record-breaking yachtswoman Ellen MacArthur and fearless mountain biker Rachel Atherton. This revised edition for the Olympics 2024 includes new additions Keely Hodgkinson, Mary Earps, Emma Wilson, Katerina Johnson-Thompson and Jade Jones.

There are so many amazing women around the world, shattering records and breaking through barriers. Every day they show talent, tenacity, and tireless commitment, redefining outdated stereotypes and delivery some breath taking performances. Author Danielle Brown is a woman who has overcome her own challenges and adversity to become a double Paralympic gold medallist and five-time World Champion in archery and it’s her current mission to inspire and empower people to unlock their potential, overcome adversity and achieve more.

In this book Danielle tells the stories of 50 extraordinary and inspiring sportswomen, many of whom she has interviewed. She lists their achievements accompanied with cool illustrations and it is all written for a readership of young women who can use this inspiration to fuel their own dreams. In addition to giving an insight into the influences, motivations and achievements of these women, each story reminds us that failing can teach us just as much as winning; success isn’t limited to the sports field; and ‘running like a girl’ can lead you all the way to the top. Remember there is no limit to your potential.
