Learn the history of the Davis Cup with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. The Davis Cup weighs more than 100 kilograms, is over one meter tall, and is the world´s oldest sports trophy. It has been filled with champagne in Paris nightclubs, stolen in Peru, and locked in bank vaults during World Wars. These days, it is sought after by more than 100 countries every year and known to many as the ´´holy grail´´ of men´s tennis. The Davis Cup tournament started in 1889 when four Harvard students decided to test their tennis skills against players in Britain. The prize was neither money nor fame, but simply a silver trophy. Dwight Davis, one of the Harvard students who later became the US Secretary of War, paid $1000 out of his own money to buy the original Davis Cup. It is now worth approximately 600,000 US dollars and is used as the prize for the largest team tournament in the world.

Americana as genuine as it gets. Heartwarming. Hilarious. Archetypal. Seventeen stories of small-town America that will make you laugh. Guaranteed. If you grew up in the rural Midwest, you´ve met big, easy-going Sheriff Tip Tungate, with his uniquely local sense of justice. You´ve sat in front of hulking principal Butch Bauer, who runs ´´the best sports program in the state´´, and seen his football trophies in the display case behind him. You know Mrs. Aubrey, the church secretary who knows everything, and Pastor Frank, the minister with a secret. You´ve eaten breaded tenderloin at Big Iva´s Truckstop while watching goings-on among the Peterbilts. You have eaten baked beans and chocolate cake at the church carry-in supper, been embarrassed by a revival, and seen what happens in small towns to intellectuals who won´t shut up. Seat of Howarth County, Indiana, not far north of the Ohio River, Sedalia is on no map, but lives in the hearts of Hoosiers everywhere. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Crow Johnson.

Fit for America is at once an intellectual biography of Major John L. Griffith, one of the preeminent intercollegiate athletics administrators of the twentieth century, and an in-depth look at how athletics shaped national military preparedness in a time of war and anticommunist sentiment.Lindaman traces Griffith?s forty-year career, one that spanned both world wars and included his appointment as the first Big Ten commissioner from 1922 until 1945. Griffith also served as NCAA president in the 1930s and later became the secretary-treasurer during World War II. Throughout his career, he worked tirelessly to advance the role and importance of collegiate sports on a regional and national level. In an era of heightened fears of communism, Griffith saw intercollegiate athletics as a way to prepare young men to become fit, disciplined military recruits. Griffith also founded his own publication, the Athletic Journal, in 1922 in which he published opinion pieces and solicited the opinions of other leading coaches and administrators nationwide. Through these pages, Lindaman explores not only Griffith?s philosophy but also the emergence of a coaching and athletic administration network. Drawing on voluminous primary source material and the many writings Griffith left behind, Fit for America brings long-overdue attention to a figure who was instrumental in shaping the world of American intercollegiate sports.
´Sarah doesn´t just sit at the table - she stands on it. She´s full of inspiring advice about how to bounce back from failures, speak your truth, embrace your quirks, and have a lot more fun along the way.´ (Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO and founder of Leanin.org) As a child Sarah Robb O´Hagan felt destined to become a champion, but her early efforts at sport, music and theatre failed to reveal a natural superstar. Unwilling to settle for average, she learned through a series of dramatic successes and epic failures to follow her own path to success. Sarah climbed the corporate ladder at Virgin Atlantic, Nike, Gatorade and Equinox - also becoming a wife, a mother and an endurance athlete - and though in her 20s she was fired twice, in her 30s she led the turnaround of a $5 billion sports drink business. Her approach has stemmed from personal experience and inspiration from the band of highly accomplished ´Extremers´ that she has met along the way: entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, TV personalities, an Olympic champion downhill skier, a former secretary of state, and even a world-famous tattoo artist. These Extremers helped her recognise that success doesn´t come from conforming, hiding weaknesses or reaching some preplanned destination. The bolder choice is to embrace Extreme You: to bring all that is distinctive and relevant about yourself to everything you do and to bring out the Extreme in the people and the culture around you. Inspiring, practical and funny, Extreme You is Sarah´s training programme for developing the drive, originality and fierce attitude to become the best version of you. 1. Language: English.

In 1900, aged 22, Charles Stewart Rolls was the best known motorist in Britain, better known than Jeremy Clarkson today, having won the ´´Thousand Mile Trial´´ of that year, the event that launched motoring as a practical popular concept. Rolls followed his success in the Trial by racing in highly dangerous inter-city races in Europe. He drove the fastest time ever achieved in Britain, although this was never ratified. At the same time, Rolls ran a large car-sales and service showroom in London, employing 70 staff with space for 200 cars. In the span of six months, he persuaded the secretary of the Automobile Society of Great Britain and Ireland to join him, and then, shortly after, discovered Henry Royce with whom his name is now forever linked. This triumvirate of talented engineers and businessmen took Rolls-Royce Ltd. to the pinnacle of motor and aero engineering that the company has occupied ever since. Rolls helped create the new sport of hot-air ballooning and raced his balloon for his country. He then joined a select band of intrepid pioneers who risked all to prove the theory of powered flight. He was first to fly the English Channel both ways but weeks later perished at the Bournemouth Air Show. Engineer, salesman, aristocrat, pioneer, and businessman, Charles Rolls offers us a timely reminder of British invention, courage, and ingenuity more than 100 years ago. 1. Language: English.
