Triumph and Tragedy: Welsh Sporting Legends
Hardcover - English

Contains profiles of 20 of the most significant post-war Welsh sports stars. Each individual has been carefully selected on the basis that he or she achieved something unique, such as being the first Welsh cricketer to play in an Ashes Test and being the first black player to captain Great Britain. Contains exclusive material on many of the subjects. This collection of enlightening profiles captures a whole galaxy of Welsh world-beaters up close. Those featured include arguably the best Welsh rugby union player of the twentieth century, Gareth Edwards; the greatest bowler never to play for England, Don Shepherd; the farmer's boy who became a master golfer, Ian Woosnam; the lad from Tiger Bay who made such a name for himself in Hull that they called a thoroughfare after him, Clive Sullivan; the Gentle Giant from Swansea, still revered in Italy almost 50 years after his last match for Juventus, John Charles; the only Welsh jockey to win the Grand National twice, Carl Llewellyn; and the unsung hero of Old Trafford who kept Manchester United going in the fraught weeks after the Munich air disaster, Jimmy Murphy. Packed with intriguing insights and exclusive interviews with many of the featured stars, Triumph and Tragedy confirms that Welsh sportsmen and women possess talent, spirit, and an appetite for success in abundance.
