Animal Olympians by Tina Dalton-Hagege

01 / 01 / 2003

Illustrated by Jan Wade

The animal kingdom has long possessed natural athletes whose physical achievements may not win them gold but will secure the next meal, or perhaps mating rights. The ability to sprint faster than your predator may become a matter of life and death.

This book celebrates the athletic achievements of the animal kingdom and opens up a world of extraordinary facts and accomplishments. Accompanied by descriptive and sometimes amusing illustrations and photographs, it shows how some animal species break all equivalent human athletic records.

There are animals that excel in boxing, archery, hammer throwing, gymnastics, diving, sprinting and long distance events. While not intended to demean human achievements these record-breaking animal Olympians are undeniably remarkable. They lend themselves to illustration which will amaze the young reader and show them why these animal feats are necessary for their survival.
