Acerca de


The Olympic Challenge 1984 is about Olympic events, Olympic athletes, Olympic history, and Olympic records. It was written by 1968 Olympic Decathlon gold medalist Bill Toomey and 1970/74 Commonwealth Games medalist Barry King. Their book is a guide to 1984 Games and much more. From their unique perspective, the authors provide the spectator and viewer with the information necessary to understand, appreciate, and fully enjoy their Olympic experience. The emphasis is on events and the athletes' pursuit of performance. The opening five chapters chart a straight course through the historical development of the Games, from their ancient heritage to the present day. A sketch of Los Angeles as host city details the Olympic preparations and the unique business deals that provided most of the funding. A chapter on each sport provides the historical background and the Olympic highlights, as well as the basic rules and strategy of each event. The authors have looked ahead to indicate the general trends and to spotlight individuals when they have evidenced clear potential for striking Olympic gold. A records section provides a listing of all Olympic gold medalists since the 1896 Games. Bill Toomey and Barry King share a positive view toward the Olympic Games. They subscribe to the ideal, promoting the notion that humanity should be able to come together peacefully to demonstrate their excellence in competition and abide by principles of fairness.
