"Unyielding Spirit"

The authorized biography on Merlene Ottey

Quote from the book cover:
"Unyielding Spirit" recounts Merlene Ottey's humble start on a dirt track in rural Jamaica and her phenomenal climb to an illustrious, international career, maintained for some 17 years at the highest level.
Share her triumphs and disappointments, marvel at her unassuming manner and admire her dignity and graciousness even in the face of defeat.
Read about the intriciacies of the international track and field circuit and revel in a comprehensive compilation of Ottey's career achievements.
Many vintage action shoots and glimpses into the private world of today's most popular and certainly most decorated female athlete make this a "must have".
Jamaican writer Claire Forrester and researcher Alvin Campell have collaborated with Merlene Ottey to record for us a truly inspiring legend.


Unfortunately the publisher of the book has went bankrupt and it is still unclear whether the book will be published by another company. At the moment the Merlene Ottey Fanclub is therefore in no position to assist fans in buying the book.
