raul book 2A book called "Possible" was presented yesterday in Tallinn, Estonia. The story is about how Gerd Kanter became the World and the Olympic Champion and achieved 10 championship medals. The book is written by Raul Rebane, the man who built the team around Gerd in the early years of his career.

This innovative and unconventional sports project brought together a lot of experts from many countries and various specialties. The book includes many topics such as talent, team, relationship, nutrition, failure and physical education. An exceptional approach is explained about the theory of an athlete´s public relations and image.
