The shortlist for the Sports Book Awards were announced this morning, 5th May, and we were delighted to see Stronger: Changing Everything I Knew About Women’s Strength by Poorna Bell on the list! Bell’s book has been nominated for the iPRO Hydrate Sports Performance Book Of The Year, which is open for public vote here.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the awards aim to highlight and raise the profile of the most outstanding sports books from the previous year. In Stronger, Bell has put in the work to help evolve our understanding of strength and fitness by reframing movement in joy and achievement, examining gender dynamics in relation to strength and looking at age and diversity in sport and movement.
The Sports Book Awards, in association with The Sunday Times will take place at the Kia Oval on 26th May. Congratulations to Poorna! We wish her, and all the other nominees, the best of luck.
