Fighting for Gold

September 11th, 2012 by Carrie Gleason

For kids who are looking for non-fiction sports bios about athletes, Lorimer publishes the Recordbooks series. These books tell the stories of famous Canadian athletes who have had to overcome adversity. As well, the books have a low reading level, which makes them perfect for sports fans who are struggling readers.

Fighting for Gold

Fighting for Gold is the story of the 2006 Paralympic Hockey team and shows how these players travel, play hockey (and win!), and live with a physical disability. Hockey Canada insider Lorna Schultz Nicholson was at the games when the team won and interviewed the athletes for this book. (This book is a great choice for units on empathy.)


While Canadians today take it for granted that our athletes will excel in events at the Winter Games, it hasn't always been that way. Crazy Canucks, also in the Recordbooks series, is the story of the Canadian ski team who took the world by storm in the 70s and 80s with their daring. Sportswriter Eric Zweig takes readers up close and personal with the skiers that proved to the world what Canadians were made of!


Hockey history buffs will enjoy the story of the Winnipeg Falcons, the first team to win gold when hockey was made an Olympic sport at the 1920 summer games (it was moved to the winter games in 1924). Long Shot in the Recordbooks series is also written by hockey historian Eric Zweig.
