I Want To Be A Champion ... A Champion's Letter To Kids With a Dream, by Sunny Hale.
Sunny started out with what looked like an impossible dream in the sport of Polo. Often referred to as the Sport of Kings, Polo dates back over 2,000 years and no woman had ever done or even been considered an option for what she wanted to do. Not only did she achieve her goal, she became one of the most highly respected players in the sport and literally changed history forever in the process. This book is a unique opportunity for people of all ages to learn a powerful message from an expert, who is respected all over the world for her achievements and her character of a true Champion. In "I want to be a Champion", Sunny Hale reveals the personal secrets that she used to achieve her dream, so you can achieve yours. Believe in small dreams, they can come true.
What sets Sunny Hale apart from the pack is her achievements at the top of what has traditionally been a male dominated sport. Hale was hired as a professional to compete on polo teams for over 20 seasons alongside some of the greatest male players of all time. Her most famous victory in Polo is the day she became the first woman in history to win the US Open Polo Championships, American Polo's most coveted trophy and professional title.
Since that historic win, a movement has ignited in polo around the world for women. She was hired by the Outback Steakhouse Polo Team at the request of the world's #1 player of all time Adolfo Cambiaso. This would be the equivalent of a woman being hired to play in the NBA, World Series or the Superbowl as a starter among the men and winning the championships. With no template to follow she not only achieved her personal dream, in what has been called the second most dangerous sport only to auto racing, but she amassed one of the most impressive winning records and literally changed history forever in the process. The New York Times called Sunny "the most famous female polo player in the world". ESPNW compares her accomplishment as "some say she's pulled off the equivalent of being the first woman to earn a World Series Ring."
