This book is an excellent resource for anyone who is interested in the complete Olympic results. It covers information about each participant in each event and has excellent stories to boot. For example, did you know Grace Kelly's father, Jack, won a gold medal in a rowing event? Or that Hilter made a pass at the American winner of the women's 100-yard dash in 1936?
This is the OVERSIZED (it barely fit in my scanner!) softcover stated Penguin First Edition from 1984. Both the cover and the book are in positively excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, markings, etc. and the pages and binding are tight. This wonderful, impossible-to-find item is available for purchase now!
