The book's synopsis reads: "Many of the women were not born athletes. They turned to exercise relatively late in life and went on to break down barriers and smash not just records but also taboos. With her natural empathy and sense of humour, Louise forms close bonds with these incredible women and reveals what it takes to be a real superwoman."

Speaking to The Book Seller, Louise added: "I am so excited about my second book with Bloomsbury Sport where I will be telling the stories of brave and inspiring women who are breaking boundaries through sport by challenging myself to join them. Every woman I talk to has been chosen by me for their strength, tenacity and resilience. I will spend time with every one of them in their happy place whether it is swimming in frozen mountain lakes, in the rain on a muddy rugby pitch or at the top of a climbing wall to hear and tell their incredible stories."

The book comes after Louise's first, also about sport and Louise's journey to competing in a triathlon, Dare to Tri: My Journey from the BBC Breakfast Sofa to GB Team Triathlete.
