A Complete History of the Olympic Games. Find out about the amazing stars of the Olympics, right back to Ancient times. Read about triumph and tragedy, elation and despair – it’s all there in stories that range from totally unbelievable to just plain bizarre!

This collection, however, not only covers the stories of the stars but also the stories of nations – and their struggle on the world scene.  In the perfect world, sport would be totally separate from world events and divisions – but not so in real life. So we find many ‘stars’ caught up in issues totally beyond their control – and in some cases, with tragic circumstances. But against all the odds, man proves himself again and again incredibly resilient, proudly living up to the motto of the Olympic Games : “Citius, Altius, Fortius” – Faster, Higher, Stronger.

History of the Olympic Games Sample Text:

Leonidas:             First there was a one length of the stadium sprint. Then two, and then the long-distance race of 20 to 24 lengths. I was champion of all three races at 4 different Games, so I was something of a hero in my home city of Rhodes!

Gymnast:            I wonder what your people would have thought about a race of 26 miles and run by women!

Leonidas:             (in disbelief) Never! 26 miles? Run by women? You’ll be telling me next the whole world can compete!

Rower:                 It can and does! Absolutely nobody barred!

Leonidas:             And what about the winners? No, don’t tell me. You’re going to tell me there was more than one winner to each race?!

Swimmer:           Well, in a way I suppose you’re right! We do award  first, second and third places!

Kallipateira:        What? With small, medium and large wreaths?

Gymnast:            No! With gold, silver and bronze medals!
