Description
A History of West Indies Cricket has been fully updated, telling the recent story of West Indian cricket in the nineties and at the start of the 21st century. The records sections have also been brought up to date. In 1975, the West Indies became the first winners of the cricket World Cup. Their style of cricket has always been ideal for this type of game; exhilarating, stroke-making batsmen; penetrative, wicket-taking bowlers and dynamic, athletic fielders. The epitome of the team was its captain, Clive Lloyd, a magnificent all-rounder. For 15 years between 1976 and 1991, the West Indies ruled the cricket world in imperious style, winning 62 Test matches and losing just 17. Batsmen of the calibre of Haynes, Greenidge, Richards, Lloyd and Richardson, and bowlers such as Holding, Roberts, Garner, Croft, Walsh and Ambrose, struck fear into the hearts and minds of opposing players. In 1994, Brian Lara announced himself in a way like no other. He set world records in both Test and First-class cricket in the same calendar year, taking 375 off the England attack, then flaying an injury-hit Durham county attack for 501 not out for Warwickshire. It was at this point that the old edition was published. The update will highlight the sad demise of West Indian cricket. The accessibility of cable television from the United States has shown youngsters in the Caribbean other sports, ones which offer untold wealth to even those of moderate professional standard. Football too has taken a hold, with Jamaica reaching the World Cup finals in 1998. The year 2000 was a watershed as it saw the Test careers of both Walsh and Ambrose close, thus severing the last links with the heyday of West Indian cricket. History has shown it will rise again.

The Fall of the House of Fifa is the definitive story of Fifa's rise and the most spectacular fall sport has ever seen.

1904: 'No person should be allowed to arrange matches for personal profit' - Fifa congress

A century later: 'Fifa is a Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organisation (RICO) enterprise' - A judge in Brooklyn, using a term originally coined for the mafia

For forty years Joao Havelange and then Sepp Blatter presided over a Fifa now plagued with scandal - dawn raids, FBI investigations, allegations of money laundering, industrial-scale bribery, racketeering, tax evasion, vote-buying and theft. Now David Conn, football's most respected investigative journalist, chronicles the extraordinary history and staggering scale of corruption. He paints revealing portraits of the men at the centre of Fifa - the power brokers, the indicted, the legends like Franz Beckenbauer and Michel Platini - and puts the allegations to Blatter himself in an extended interview.

David Conn is the author of The Beautiful Game? and multi-award-winning journalist for the Guardian. He has been awarded UK sports news reporter of the year three times, and sports journalist of the year in the British Journalism Awards.

Description
Beijing 2008, the 100 metres final: Usain Bolt slows down, beats his chest, metres clear of his nearest rival, his face filled with the euphoria of a young man utterly in thrall to his extraordinary physical talent. It is one of the greatest sporting moments. It is just the beginning. Of the ten fastest 100-metres times in history, eight belong to Jamaicans. How is it that a small Caribbean island has come to almost totally dominate the men's and women's sprint events? The Bolt Supremacy opens the doors to a community where sprinting permeates conversations and interactions; where the high school championships are watched by 35,000 screaming fans; where identity, success and status are forged on the track, and where making it is a pass to a world of adoration and lucrative contracts. In such a society there can be the incentive for some to cheat. There are those who attribute Jamaican success to something beyond talent and hard work. Award-winning writer Richard Moore doesn't shy away from difficult questions as he travels the length of this beguiling country speaking to anti-doping agencies, scientists and sceptics as well as to coaches, gurus, superstar athletes and the young guns desperate to become the next big thing. Peeling back the layers, Moore finally reveals the secrets of Usain Bolt and the Jamaican sprint factory.

Description

Veteran physical educator Bev Davison knows how to get the biggest bang for her buck. In Creative Physical Activities and Equipment, she shares her secrets of how to expand a physical education or recreation program without exceeding the budget.

Davison's practical, ready-to-use strategies help you make the most of your budget, no matter how big or small. But the ideas in this book aren't just easy on the wallet; more equipment means less down time and more opportunities for children to participate and learn.

First, you'll discover how to make equipment using inexpensive, readily available materials and even trash! Need some pinnies? Grab a pair of scissors and some old towels and start creating! Are old dryer sheets accumulating in the laundry room? Turn them into juggling scarves! All of the equipment is easy to assemble-no mechanical skill is needed. In addition, the book describes dozens of unique games and activities that use this equipment to teach important skills.

Next, the book explains how to use traditional equipment-such as Frisbees and jump ropes-in nontraditional ways and how to extend the life of old or broken equipment, including flat tennis balls and broken badminton racquets. You'll also learn the art of obtaining free equipment. The book provides information on equipment that's free for the asking, items that can be obtained by collecting proofs of purchase, and general budget-stretching ideas.

Finally, since some equipment can be quite expensive, fundraising is an occasional necessity. Proving that fundraising does not have to be time-consuming and painful, the book presents ideas for 15 refreshingly creative fundraisers that are easy to organize and execute. Many of them don't require solicitation by students, which means greater parental support and participation.

A resource no physical education or recreation program should be without, Creative Physical Activities and Equipment can pay for itself after just one use!
