The "Bible of the Winter Olympics," filled with history, statistics, and anecdotes ranging from the astonishing to the bizarre. Contained within the pages of this authoritative book is everything anyone could wish to know about the Winter Olympics. Now in its eighth edition and published in anticipation of the 2010 Vancouver Games, The Complete Book of the Winter Olympics has been expanded to include the rules and scoring for all the upcoming events, as well as the results from the 2006 Turin Games. The book also looks at the history of each Olympic event from inception to the present day, including discontinued events and the four skating events first featured, before the creation of the Winter Olympics, in the 1908 London Summer Olympics. From speed skating to snowboarding, bobsled to ice hockey, the book gives the medals tables, timings, distances, and scores. But much more than a statistical compendium, the book also offers an abundance of Winter Olympic history, anecdotes, and lore, bringing alive the most dramatic moments from the Games and celebrating the many extraordinary individuals who have competed.
