Who is willing to commit their entire everyday life to being the best they can be? Abdelkader Kada has coached athletes of exceptional ability who answered 'yes' to these questions. The stories of Moroccans Hicham El Guerrouj, Salah Hissou and Ali Ezzine are ones of great success. Success that was achieved through dedication, belief and natural talent. Inspired by their coach and the earlier deeds of Said Aouita, read on as Hicham, Salah and Ali do their best to defeat some of the greatest long distance runners the world has seen.

The story of the nine-year journey which took AFC Wimbledon from the very depths of nonleague football back to their rightful place in the Football League Collecting more than 100 stories from the key figures involved in the club, this is a chronicle of the ups and downs, the controversies, and the final redemption as the Dons reclaimed their place in the Football League in 2011. Far more than a simple football tale, this is a story of romance and hard work, mostly by those forgotten heroes of modern sports—the fans, who, when the club they loved was torn away from them, rolled up their sleeves and refused to lie down. After the sale of Wimbledon FC to Milton Keynes, an unprecedented and unwelcome scenario in English football, the club reformed under a new name and began again in the lower leagues. With no stadium, players, money, manager, backroom staff, or kit, the fans were all that remained, and the club became a democratic, supporter-run business. What happened next demonstrates that modern football is about so much more than television money and overpaid superstars. Dozens of heroes made the AFC journey possible, from the players that donned the yellow and blue and the fans who gave up their time to operate the turnstiles on matchdays to the fundraisers, stewards, elected Dons Trust Board members, program sellers, scouts, and fundraisers. With little more than their history to build on, they reclaimed their club, and this book traces exactly how it was done, through the eyes of all those that made it happen.
