Olympics’ Strangest Moments: Extraordinary but True Stories from the History of the Olympic Games
Geoff Tibballs (au)
Recounts the bizarre, controversial, inept, heroic and plain unlucky moments from three centuries of the Summer Games. From the inception of the modern Olympic Games in 1896 to Athens 2004, the world’s greatest sporting occasion has been packed with unusual occurrences. Some unlikely heroes have been created too, including Dorando Pietri, who missed out on a marathon gold when over-anxious London officials helped him over the finish line, and Eric Eel, the slowest swimmer in the history of the Games. Few Olympic champions were as unlikely as U.S. gymnast George Eyser, who overcame the handicap of a wooden leg to win three golds in 1904. “This fascinating book will appeal to sports lovers everywhere.”
