Life Outside the Oval Office

Publisher: Cool Titles

Two-time US Olympian and world champion silver medalist Nick Symmonds is not your typical runner. He is short, he is stocky, and he is not afraid to speak up when he believes in a person or a cause. Nick has also consistently been at the top of the world rankings in the men s 800 meter for close to a decade. He is intense, passionate about his sport, and grounded. This small town boy is not anyone s typical idea of an activist or an international running sensation. But, he is both. Here, for the first time, Nick Symmonds brings readers intimately into his life, and candidly shares his greatest triumphs and his most challenging personal and professional struggles. Foreword by Coach Frank Gagliano.

"Nick has broken industry barriers, just by speaking up and out." Coach Frank Gagliano (Coach Gags)

"Symmonds is considered the most outspoken and one of the more marketable athletes in track and field." FloTrack
