The 'Complete Book of the Olympics' contains everything anyone could ever need or want to know about the Modern Olympic Games, taking place at the Sydney Olympiad this September.
It provides a complete statistical record of every event since the foundation for the Modern Games in 1896. But it is much more than a dry summary of medals won and times and distances recorded; it also contains a wealth of fascinating anecdotes, recounting tales of heroic achievement as well as many of the bizarre and often comic episodes that have enlivened a century of Olympic history.
This new edition has been fully revised and extended to include the results of the 1996 Atlanta games, rules for each sport to be played in Sydney as well as a map of Homebush.
