Unsung Sporting Heroes is a collection of more than 30 stories of courage, sportsmanship and having a go. ABC Grandstand's broadcasters - such as Jim Maxwell, Debbie Spillane, Amanda Shalala, Peter Wilkins, Charlie King and Shannon Byrne - join the winners of the inaugural sports writing short story competition to bring you heartwarming tributes to their personal unsung sporting heroes. From Kokoda veteran, Ted Howe, who returned to his hometown of Penguin to become an integral part of the Penguin Football Club for an astonishing 66 years; to Paul Wade, the former Socceroos captain, who we all know rocked a great mullet, but who also battled with epilepsy, a condition he overcame with characteristic Wade humour and humility - this collection pays tribute to community heroes alongside elite athletes who all share a common ambition to contribute, achieve and love their sport.
