This book, with its two companion DVDs, is a splendid and important contribution to the sport of race walking. Focusing on the competitive walker, Race Walk Like a Champion should--must--be read by walkers of all ages and abilities who are serious about competing. With clearly written and illustrated explanations including color coded graphs and training schedules, this book and its videos provide a complete, one-stop resource of reliable, expert information.
Elaine Ward - President, North American Race Walking Foundation
Race Walk Like a Champion has an excellent overall presentation with its written explanations of each technique component enhanced by the great photographic examples. I am certain the combination of the book and DVD will provide the novice or beginning race walker the tools necessary to master the technique.
Of the many race walking books and videos I have reviewed during my career, this is hands down the best and most thorough presentation of race walking technique offered. I will recommend the book as the definitive guide to athletes who consult me for advice on race walking technique.
Curt Clausen - Three-time Olympian & National Record Holder
Race Walk Like a Champion’s training chapter is amongst the best I have ever read. Coach Salvage did a great job addressing each component in a way that can be easily understood.
