In just over 200 pages, French journalists Olivier Margot and Étienne Bonamy recount the key moments of the Olympic Games that have stirred the emotions of the public, from the triumph of runner Jesse Owens at the Berlin Games in 1936 to the inspiring conclusion of injured 400m specialist Derek Redmond, who finished the event with the help of his father in 1992. This book wonderfully reveals all the suspense of competitions and the joy of success.
