Everyday amazing athletes push themselves to their limits, achieving amazing feats in the process. And yet, for the most part, we never hear their stories because most are not professional athletes with their faces on magazine covers. Out of this realization (and admiration) was born SHIVSPIX, whose goal is to share these stories, and in the process help us all get closer to achieving our own personal best.More about SHIVSPIX›
What it takes
The Real Olympic Journey
It started with an innocent question: What does it really look like to train for the Olympics? We see the coverage during those 2 spectacular weeks broadcast on TV across the world. But what about the four years leading up to that?
After seven years, I was finally able to answer that question with this book, The Longest Odds.
More than that, The Longest Odds is about the choices we make and live by through the experiences of the US Olympic rowing team.
