A legend in his lifetime

It has been a privilege to produce my latest book ‘A legend in his lifetime” featuring the phenomenal Japanese gymnast Kohei Uchimura. Unquestionably this is a gymnast who has placed himself at the top of the ranking of all time greats by his exceptional achievements – six consecutive World All Around titles and the Olympic title in 2012.The original version of this book has now been updated to include his outstanding achievements at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio – a team gold medal and a gold medal in the All Around.

This book has been created as a tribute to a gymnast whose career is in no way completed and who with good luck could finally retire after the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

The book comprises 66 pages and 107 colour and black and white photographs and is available in hardback and softcover; a further preview can be seen by clicking this link   http://www.blurb.co.uk/b/7285981-a-legend-in-his-lifetime

An e book version will be available shortly.

I have included a small selection of pages from the book which will give an indication of the topics covered and which include action and portrait images taken during his career so far.

Please respect the copyright of these images.
