The Book of Olympic Lists Paperback
From the multi-million selling author of The Book of Lists and The Complete Book of the Olympics comes an entirely new take on the Games.
Wallechinsky has a uniquely vast knowledge of the Olympics and an unrivalled head for arcane - now the two are combined in this collection of 150 unexpected Olympic lists, including: * The eight slowest Olympic competitors * The twelve strangest sports ever contested * The six most spectacular collisions and falls * The top ten shaven-headed Olympians Published for the 2012 Games, The Book of Olympic Lists is a quirky compendium of the unusual, the unknown and the downright bizzare.
More than simply a book of lists, Wallechinsky elaborates and expands on the reason for an athlete or incident's inclusion, to create a winning - and highly addictive - alternative history of the Olympics.
