Description
Information
This book is more than just a biography of Kevin Gosper's life, from his early days as an outstanding athlete and Olympic medallist through his successful business career with Shell, to his twenty years plus as a member of the International Olympic Committee. It is a fascinating biography, with cameo descriptions on great sporting moments, insights into the history and workings of the IOC from a long time insider, and a very real account of Gosper's rise through the ranks of Shell on postings throughout the world.

Also included is a full and frank account of the unfolding story of corruption within the Olympic movement, the Phil Coles saga, the Salt Lake City imbroglio - all told from the point of view of one of the Olympic "clean skins". This makes a fascinating finale to a book which is full of great stories.
