It's not exactly a sports biography (well, not at all, really...) but you should definitely read Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing.

 

In 1914, Shackleton tries to cross Antarctica, but his ship gets caught and crushed by the pack ice in the Weddell Sea leaving 28 men stranded on the ice floes, which later start to break apart. It took nearly two years (and two Antarctic winters) but eventually Shackleton got them all to safety. It's an unbelievable story.

Was that book made into a movie?
