AW Specials Magazine Greatest Olympic Athletes Back Issue

English 1 Reviews   •  English   •   Sport (Athletics & Running)
The Greatest Olympic Athletes, 1948 to present day includes every event discipline and tells the fascinating stories of how the iconic gold medals were won.

The list of athletes on show is extensive and whether you’re a runner, jumper, thrower or all three combined, we have tried to capture the atmosphere, trials and tribulations of each Olympic champion.

The bookazine is full of interesting tales of how the elusive gold medals were won and how the superstars rose to fame. It is packed with a treasure-chest of images that tell a story in their own right from a time when black and white was the latest technology to present day interactive, 3D, hi-definition full colour. There’s statistics too – an essential part of any Olympic who’s who.

Who is the best athlete to compete in an Olympic Games? Which performance has stood out above all others? Which have been the best Games? This is a debate that could literally run and run and perhaps in the pages of this publication you can make up your own mind.

The Greatest Olympic Athletes is a must have for all athletics fans and those who just love the magic that an Olympic Games can conjure. We hope you enjoy the book and with the 2012 Games in London just around the corner and the excitement gradually building, we hope it puts you in the mood for the dramas that will unfold in the Olympic arena.
