A thrill-packed glimpse into the drama of the Olympics, focusing on some of its defining sports, as well as more unusual ones. The fact-rich text starts with a look at favourite track and field events: running, hurdling, pole vaulting, javelin throwing and other iconic staples. The book then goes on to explore some of the more diverse Olympic sports, from diving and gymnastics to boat racing, cycling, horse riding, and summer and winter sports. Explaining the objectives and rules of different sports, and showcasing a wealth of amazing statistics and records, this is an irresistible look at the legacy of the Games and at the diverse activities it embraces. A fuller text throughout the book helps to stretch young readers, and is brought alive by plenty of stunning photos from past competitions.
