And a Brief History of Athletics


Providing a unique look at Olympic Games from past to present day, this ebook features the best bits of every Summer and Winter Olympics since 1896, alongside a fascinating history of athletics from ancient to modern times.

There is also an appendix of, arguably, the greatest champions across all sports and a list of the current outdoor World Athletic records for men and women. There are highlights of the 2015 World Athletic Championships and finally, a calendar of upcoming events.
