A insiders view of the greatest sporting event in the world. Anon explores the world of an elite athlete before, during and after the Olympic games. He/she also draws on the experiences of other Olympians to demonstrate how the Olympic experience and Olympic movement have changed over the decades.
Anon discusses the thorny issue of drugs in sport and strongly supports the lifetime bans for drug cheats.
We get a behind the scenes look at the village, the partying, the food, the partying, the accomodation, the partying...
Paul Thornley is an excellent & unobtrusive narrator.
All in all a very insightful, entertaining and thought provoking book for anyone who has an interest in the Olympics and sport in general.
