Zola: The autobiography of Zola Budd with Hugh Eley


When Zola Budd, aged just 17, broke the World 5000 metres record in South Africa in January 1984, her life changed in a way that she could never have anticipated. She was captured from a quiet life on a South African farm, give a British passport within weeks and thrown straight into the ruthless, commercial world of international athletics. Young and inexperienced, she was repeatedly exploited as a valuable commodity by people who failed to notice that they were not just dealing with a talented athlete but with a frightened and confused girl as well…

Zola Budd’s controversial autobiography is a cry from the heart of a much-understood young girl who is finally setting the record straight.
