Hard covered book titled THE OLYMPICS A HISTORY OF THE GAMES Sports Illustrated, Compliments of Oldsmobile, by William Johnson, 1996, 224 pages.
A poorly organized affair when first revived in 1896, the Olympic Games have since become the grandest spectacle of international sport the world has ever seen. Through breathtaking photographs and the vivid prose of senior writer William Johnson, Sports Illustrated chronicles the Games in all their beauty and diversity, from the first collection of athletes in Athens in 1896 to the winter festival in Lillehammer. Revealing profiles present the stars who made the Olympics their personal stage and historical essays trace the developments outside the arena that have shaped the course of the Olympic movement.
