Zátopek: When You Can’t Keep Going, Go Faster!


One of the greatest Olympic champions of all time, Emil Zátopek became a national hero for his prowess at running. The book is a powerful sketch set against the backdrop of the Cold War, and explores extraordinary sports achievements of the man known as “Czech Locomotive”. He was equally impressive as a public figure successfully pressuring the Communist regime to have a fellow runner compete in the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. Authors are both known for their own publishing and artistic achievements and the book’s comics format makes for a very lively and informative read.
