Olympic Stories



With a complete statistical record since the 1896 founding of the modern Games—including medals won and times, distances, or scores recorded by the top eight competitors in all events (from staples such as the marathon to long-discontinued competitions such as the tug of war), this encyclopedic tome contains

anything anyone could ever need or want to know about the modern Olympic Games. Far from a dry compendium of names, numbers, and scoring systems, this book also contains a summary history of every event at each of the 26 modern Games, enriched with an extraordinary wealth of Olympic lore and anecdote. The authors provide thought-provoking analysis of issues and controversies from shamateurism to drug-taking and corruption, and they have sieved through more than a century of Olympic history to assemble a mind-boggling collection of stories that range from the inspiring, through the comic, to the bizarre. Such long-forgotten characters are included as the boy who was plucked from the streets of Paris to navigate for two Dutch oarsmen in the paired-oar event in 1900 and, after steering them to victory and a Gold Medal, returned to obscurity, his name unknown to this day; or the 72-year-old winner of a silver medal for target-shooting.
  The gold medal for chronicling the modern Olympics, at every Olympiad since the Los Angeles Summer Games of 1984, has gone to renowned historian David Wallechinsky. His magnus opus, The Complete Book of the Summer Olympics, has been called the bible of the Olympics. Completely updated for the 2004 Athens Games, this ultimate reference book contains all-time Olympic records, statistics and medal standings, as well as results of the top eight finishers in every Olympic event from 1896 to 2000. It also carries, in Wallechinsky’s colorful narrative style, a complete history of the Games plus the inside stories of the major competitors and events in each and every Olympiad.
  The Olympic tradition began in ancient Greece as early as 776 BC. The first modern games were held in Athens more than two millennia later in 1896. In the summer of 2004 the Games are returning to the country of their birth. This updated edition previews the upcoming historic Games, and covers the beautiful venues, inspiring athletes, and the spectacle surrounding the world's greatest sporting event. Features include an index of important facts as well as detailed statistical information about every medal winner since the first modern games. Covering 44 Olympiads over a century, stunning action photos taken by top sports journalists capture the true spirit of the games.
  A collection of twenty-seven inspirational essays written by many of Americas most successful motivational speakers. The authors share more than 30 Olympic gold and 57 medals overall. As a group they are the most articulate spokespeople in the Olympic movement, addressing professional crowds across the country, year in and year out, in some cases are the gold medals they earn today. They include top medal winners, leaders of the Olympic movement, Olympic team captions and flagbearers elected by their peers. In most cases they also serve as experts for their sports on television broadcasts. The stories they've written will variously inspire and inform the reader on a wide selection of character traits and decisions shared by the Olympian in each of us.
