100 Ulster Sporting Legends
Free UK delivery for this book
For a place with a population much smaller than Greater Manchester, Northern Ireland has a remarkable sporting record, producing world ranked performers across a huge range of sports.
Within this book, leading sports journalist Steven Beacom presents his top 100 stars from the last 100 years – from the instantly recognisable such as golf superstar Rory McIlroy or football’s incomparable George Best to the less widely known such as Thelma Hopkins who, in 1956, set a world record in the high jump at a meeting in Belfast’s Cherryvale Park or Robin Dixon who was one half of the only Olympic Gold Medal winning bobsleigh team ever produced by these islands.
Packed with facts and fascinating stories this book is a must for all sports enthusiasts no matter what sport they follow.
