The Olympic tradition began in ancient Greece as early as 776 BC. The first modern games were held in Athens more than two millennia later in 1896. In the summer of 2004 the Games are returning to the country of their birth. This updated edition previews the upcoming historic Games, and covers the beautiful venues, inspiring athletes, and the spectacle surrounding the world's greatest sporting event. Features include an index of important facts as well as detailed statistical information about every medal winner since the first modern games. Covering 44 Olympiads over a century, stunning action photos taken by top sports journalists capture the true spirit of the games.
