Raise Your Game : How to Speak Fluent Sport (Hardcover) (Ian Valentine)
about this item
A wonderful celebration of sport’s intricate language for the casual sports fan who wants to gain a better understanding of "sporting lingo" to the "diehard sports bore" who wants a fun and illuminating read. Each sporting section is introduced with an explanation of where and how it started and why people love to play and watch it. All the mainstream sports—cricket, rugby (union and league), soccer, tennis, golf, athletics, and cycling—are covered with an additional section on Olympic sports—boxing, diving, swimming, bobsled, water polo, and beach volleyball, just to name a few.
