Als je wint heb je vrienden

Auteur: Ko Kooman

Hoe formeer je in de jungle van de topsport een heel team met hetzelfde Olympische vuur en welke valkuilen moet je omzeilen? Nog nooit eerder vertoond: op weg naar de Spelen van Beijing kreeg schrijver Kees Kooman een exclusieve inkijk in het even curieuze als ingewikkelde groepsproces. Hij volgde de vrouwenvolleybalploeg van Avital Selinger sedert 2005 'van binnenuit': confrontaties met vooroordelen, politieke intriges, de gevechten van speelsters met schijnbaar onherstelbare blessures of andere lichamelijke malheur en de onvermijdelijke afvallers. En aan het einde van de lange weg nooit vermoede rampspoed.

Dit is het unieke document van zestien gepassioneerde vrouwen en hun leiders, vier jaar vrijwillig tot elkaar veroordeeld.

Balloons have been floating through the skies since 1783 but only recently have the hot-air types superseded the more cumbersome, expen-thve zas balloons. Thanks to synthetic fibres, hot air can now be contained, and its tendency to rise can be exploited. A complete balloon, which might stand 70 feet high, can be packed into the back of a van. It costs less than a boat and it can be launched from any sheltered location. Dick Wirth designs, makes, races and goes exploring in balloons of all sizes, from one-man types to airships, and Jerry Young is a leading adventure photographer. Together they have crossed seas, looked down on Alpine peaks and brushed the tops of the Pyramids. Their book Ballooning traces the history of lighter-than-air travel, in war and peace, for science and sport, propaganda and promotion. It explains how balloons are built, how the air is heated and how the wicker baskets function. It describes how balloons, virtually unsteerable and at the mercy of the prevailing winds, go racing and how aeronauts take part in contests that are dangerous, exhilarating and breathtak-ingly skilful. This book captures the escape and the joy of ballooning as well as being a definitive practical side.

Canyoneering - the descent of natural gorges by a mixture of hiking, scrambling, swimming and abseiling - is a spicy mix both for fun and for the adventurous. This is a guide to canyoning in the limestone areas of the western Mediterranean, stretching from the Costa Blanca via the Pyrenees to Provence, Sardinia and Mallorca. Selective in nature, it includes a variety of recommended gorge descents, ranging from two-hour strolls to long-day aquatic expeditions. The more technical expeditions invariably involve abseiling and scrambling, and most canyons are within reach for anyone in possession of these skills (and, in the case of wet canyons, a one-piece wetsuit). The friendly Mediterranean canyons are great places to learn, and the guide provides a basic grounding in techniques and skills. In the dramatic mountain limestone scenery of the Mediterranean, your canyon follows a defined geographical feature that is often inescapable for much of its length. Even an easy, dry canyon can be very atmospheric; add a rush of noisy water and you have an exhilarating environment.
