There is a message in this book for every young Australian who has his or her sights on one day going to the Olympic Games.

Brooke Hanson was the baby of Australia's Commonwealth Games swim team with the world at her feet. Yet it took a decade of dogged perseverance, including twice narrowly missing Olympic selection and suffering physical and personal setbacks, before she finally achieved her Olympic dream. Co-written by Neil Cadigan, sports journalist and author, When Silver is Gold is an inspiring story about an Australian woman who refused to give in, and found that coming second at the Olympic Games was as good as gold.
