The Lovereading4Kids comment
Hundreds of fascinating facts about the Olympics past and present, both summer and winter are to be found in this terrific compendium that will provide hours of entertainment whilst the Games are on this summer. From triumph and tragedy to details of the Olympic cheats, shocks and surprises as well as detailing the medal maestros. There’s even a special section about the Beijing Games including which 28 sports are going to be featured at the Games. Why not have an Olympics quiz using this book as a basis?
Outstanding Olympics by Clive Gifford
The Olympics is with us at all times, with its build up, with vast coverage given to the competitors in over 30 different winter and summer sports looking to make the Olympic team and qualify, and with significant and substantial media time given to Olympians and the Games throughout all years of the four year cycle. The mere announcement of the winners of the hosting of the 2012 Olympics drew globally, the 10th largest TV audience of 2005 in the world - an estimated 900 million.
