From the Publisher
Ask most Olympians how their story begins and they will answer,
"When I was young, I always dreamed of going to the Olympics. . ."
Some will then go on to tell of their great athletic triumphs.
Others will recall agonizing near-misses. But for most, the very
fact that they reached the Games at all was a dream come true. For
the Olympic Games offer athletes something few others sporting
events can: the chance to be recognized as the best in the world at
a chosen sport.
With stories of great triumphs and great tragedies, the Olympics
not only embodies the competitive human spirit, but also sets a
stage stage for foreign relations and politics. Historical
references combined with amazing sports stories give this book both
an educational and exciting appeal.
