Product Overview

The third edition of this fascinating book deals with both levels of the competition--the competitive side and the administrative side. The dictionary includes hundreds of cross-referenced entries on the major sports, more outstanding athletes, participating countries and numerous bodies in the organization as well as successive generations of officials--starting with the founder, Pierre de Coubertin. Two chronologies trace the history of the Olympic movement back to the Ancient Olympiad first celebrated in Greece in 776 B.C. as well as all of the modern Games up to Athens in 2004. The appendixes then provide elusive facts on the Games, the officials, the torchbearers, and the top Olympic medal winners.
