"Clara Hughes is both an extraordinary and an ordinary Canadian.
This honest memoir reveals the determination of a champion to
overcome external adversity and internal struggles, finding her
place as an athlete, an advocate, and a person."--Dr. David
Goldbloom, Senior Medical Advisor, Centre for Addiction and Mental
"Clara brings us along on her journey from childhood to her incredible Olympic success, through her victories and her failures, all while dealing with her own personal torment. I now believe Clara to be superhuman, not for her incredible Olympic success and athletic feats, but for her dogged battle against depression, first for herself and now for the rest of us through her advocacy work. I couldn't stop reading."--Johann Koss, CEO, Right to Play International
"An amazing athlete, a great person, and a wonderful motivating example for all!"--Jo Juneau, ice hockey Olympic medalist and former NHL player
"Clara's story is just like her: It is energetic, strong, full of character, and very powerful. You really feel the determination within her and you cannot fail to wish you could award her another gold medal for the way she turned her life around and makes it her duty to help others."--Ga tan Boucher, speed skating Olympic medalist
