Elegy of An OlympianPaperback - 2016
Planned for release just before the 2016 Olympics, Chasing Water book tells the dramatic, surprising and sometimes provocative path that Anthony Ervin has taken to become one of the most captivating of Olympic heroes. At 19, Ervin won gold at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, only to shock the world retiring soon after. After auctioning off his gold medal for charity, he set off on a part-spiritual quest, part self-destructive bender, then later resurfaced to continue his career by swimming faster than ever before, and faster than anyone else.
