Summary
"One of the most recognisable names and faced in Australian sport. The first Aboriginal to win an Olympic gold medal. One of the very first people to represent their country at Olympic level in two distinct sports. The only Australian athlete to win Olympic gold in one sport and Commonwelath Games gold in another. Newly married and mother of two daughters - one just a baby. An outspoken advocate for her people and other major causes she belives in." - book jacket "This is the story of an exceptional Australian, an exceptional athlete. Someone who was phyisically gifted and deeply determined to succeed. Her life was not easy, beset with obstacles, yet she triumphed. It is also the story of a person who is vulnerable, makes mistakes, sometimes trusts too much and feels pain when crossed or criticised. Nova gives herself in telling this story. But she is optimistic at the end ; the optimism epitomises her journey." - back cover.
