Three books about inspirational older athletes

Tracy has written about the need for more images of physically fit people across the life span. In her post Inclusive Fitness? she writes that we need to see people, above the age of 30, competing in sports and training at the gym.

Age is one of my complaints about the imagery associated with CrossFit. I wrote a bit about this in my post The women of Crossfit. I love the pictures and the story of the CrossFitting grandma  but those kind of stories can be hard to find.

Here are three books I’ve looked at (and in some cases given as gifts) but they are all a few years old. Does anyone know of any new books about older athletes?

Growing Old Is Not for Sissies: Portraits of Senior Athletes Volumes 1 and 2 by Etta Clark
