One may have physical talent but one has to learn how to win.
"Vision of a Champion" is a manual on how to win at soccer by one of the most successful coaches in the history of athletics. Anson Dorrance's legendary record as head coach of both the men's and women's soccer program at the University of North Carolina culminated in the now historic (and nail biting) United States win at the 1991 FIFA Women's World Cup. Contains training advice for the body, notes on excellence in sports and essays on competition in women's athletics. With forward by soccer legend, Mia Hamm, and boldly signed by Dorrance, "Anson Dorrance, Coach, UNC". Coauthored Gloria Averbuch, a competitive runner and athlete.
