This book tells the heroic and heart-warming stories of our finest Olympians, from early-century athletes to modern-day stars.

We've come a long way since the first modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1896, when Edwin Flack, the only Australian competitor, won the 800m and 1500m track events, much to the surprise of officials, who were unable to find an Australian flag for the victory ceremony and raised the Austrian flag instead. Since then, Australia has built up a significant presence at each successive Games, and with the 2000 Olympics in sight, Australia is sure to see a host of new champions achieving their best.
