Heroes don’t just set records.
They change lives.
By example. By inspiring others.
Not Out – Heroes from the World of Sport is a collection of instances of heroism from sports ranging from cricket to football to boxing. These are stories based on real people and real events that had a profound effect not just on the world of sport, but our lives. From the first coloured world champion to the men who played bare feet to win a football tournament, this is a tribute to those sportspersons who braved tremendous odds to emerge victorious.
Some became legends, some remain relatively unknown.
But all of them reflect the spirit of sport in the finest sense.
