The Story of the Olympic Games

Out of stock for now, sorry!
Written by International Olympic Committee

Created in association with the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, The Story of the Olympic Games brings to life the glorious history of the Games of the Olympiad.

Chronologically structured and featuring up to 200 original photographs, the book charts the story of this famous global event, beginning in 776 BC in ancient Greece through to its revival in 1896 and the 27 subsequent games. The pages are packed with exclusive photographs of the action, athletes and artefacts that have defined each game, so young fans can become immersed in the world's greatest sporting spectacle in the run-up to the 2020 Games in Tokyo.
