New Release – More Than Medals

I’m excited to announce the upcoming release of More Than Medals: Lessons from an Olympian, a book I wrote with Betsy Mitchell, who is a collegiate athletic director, swimming Olympian, and my dear friend. This inspirational memoir about her life and the importance of amateur sports will be launching on May 30, 2024, but you can pre-order here.

4. How do you feel about Nash’s mother Kimberly?

5. Did the book leave you feeling hopeful for Nash and his future? Why or why not?

6. The story is written in chapters that alternate between the present and the past. Do you think the style is effective? Does it help Nash tell the story or does it hinder continuity?
