Product Overview

The Olympic Games bring together thousands of athletes, competing in over 40 sports, and representing over 200 nations. But that is just the surface, for none of this would be possible without the constant efforts of an incredible organization consisting of tens of thousands of sports lovers united in sports associations, National Olympic Committees, and the International Olympic Committee. The A to Z of the Olympic Movement deals with both levels of the competition: the competitive side and the administrative side. This is accomplished through a bibliography; two chronologies one tracing the history of the Ancient Olympiad and the other tracing the Modern Games; appendixes providing facts on the Games, the officials, the torchbearers, and the top Olympic medal winners; and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary 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.
