Olympic Games through a lens
Olympic Games through a lens provides a photographic survey of the history of the Olympic Games to date, from Athens 1896 to Beijing 2008. Jesse Owens, Emil Zátopek, Olga Korbut, Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt and other sporting legends past and present appear. But there’s more to Olympic history than record breakers and gold medallists; political boycotts, mascots, stadiums, Opening and Closing Ceremonies and key innovations, from the first Olympic Village to the introduction of the Torch Relay, also feature.
