Publisher Description

Michelle Akers, star mid-fielder for the U.S. Women's Soccer Team, has been called "one of the greatest woman athletes in history." Her incredible athletic skills and the amazing number of goals she has scored are just part of the reason. Add to them her tremendous courage and determination. For Michelle is an athlete who has fought past the ravages of CFIDS (Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome) and multiple injuries to remain competitive on a world-class level. Her fifteen years on the national team are a testimony to her amazing, never-say-die endurance. The Game and the Glory takes you onto the soccer field with Michelle, from her development as a world-class athlete to the U.S. team's history-making 1999 Women's Cup Champion Soccer Team victory. You'll also learn about her personal life: her relationships with family, friends, and teammates, her personal struggles, her grueling battle with CFIDS, and her spiritual faith that has kept her fighting -- and winning -- against unimaginable odds. You'll discover why former U.S. Soccer coach Tony DiCicco has said Michelle Akers is "the best woman that's ever played the game, period."
