Description

The most successful Olympian you've never heard of....

J�rgen Gr�bler's Olympic coaching career is one of legend, yet the man himself has remained resolutely out of the spotlight. Over the last twenty years he has masterminded British Rowing's incomparable success. And when the difference between gold and silver can mean mere fractions of a second, J�rgen Gr�bler, and his more power mantra, has achieved gloriously consistent victory. Arguably the greatest coach in British sporting history, Gr�bler's unparalleled record ranks him above national heroes such as Sir Alex Ferguson and Dave Brailsford, building champions such as Sir Steve Redgrave, Sir Matthew Pinsent and James Cracknell.

This authoritative account of Gr�bler's career straddles the Iron Curtain, beginning in the German Democratic Republic, where systemic state-funded doping was an open secret, before crossing to Britain following the fall of the Berlin Wall. And whilst culture and sport have shifted dramatically over the last half century, Gr�bler's pursuit of greatness has never faltered.

Written by Olympic medallist, Hugh Matheson, and rowing historian, Christopher Dodd, More Power is the unmissable story of one man's quest for glory, and sets out to unlock the secrets of J�rgen Gr�bler: the finest coach Olympic sport has ever seen.
