Australia and the Olympic Games 1994-2002.
Following on from the ground-breaking 'Australia And The Olympic Games' (1994), this engrossing account of the dramatic lead-up to and amazing success of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games is a must-read for every Australian.
Veteran journalist and official Olympic historian Harry Gordon has gone behind the scenes and interviewed all the major figures behind the Sydney Olympics - in SOCOG, the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC), the New South Wales.
With the exclusive and official backing of the AOC, this book is one of a kind. No other book on the Sydney Olympics will ever reveal so much of the excitement, the secrets and the intrigue.
Illustrated with over 130 black-and-white and colour images, and including forewords by Cathy Freeman and Ian Thorpe and a preface by John Coates (the president of the AOC), this is a once-in-a-lifetime book. This was The Time of Our Lives.
