The Olympics attract the largest television audiences and make superstars out of hundreds of sportsmen and women. As we prepare for the summer games in Rio, this fully revised and updated collection celebrates almost 120 years of sporting endeavor and excellence. It focuses on the great stories, statistics, lists, and quotes, and reviews of every previous Olympic Games, from Athens 1896 to London 2012.
John White, dubbed the “Master of the Sporting Factoid,” has now written in excess of a dozen titles in the sports Miscellany series. From his home in Belfast, Northern Ireland, he has created a database of facts, stats, and stories on a wide range of sports from football to Formula 1 and cricket to cycling. His love for the Olympics goes back to watching compatriot Mary Peters win gold at Munich in 1972.
