The Olympic Games is the biggest sporting event on the planet and has developed beyond all proportion since Frenchman Baron Pierre du Coubertin first mooted the notion of reviving the Ancient Olympic ideal in 1889. The first modern Olympics, held appropriately in Athens in 1896, featured a meagre 241 athletes from 14 countries; by the time the event hits London in 2012, 4,200 athletes from 147 countries will compete in front of a global television audience of 6.7 billion people. In the intervening 114 years, some of the greatest stories in world sport have been written, and names have been etched into sporting folklore. The Olympic Games and World Records Book is a collection of the finest achievements on sport's greatest platform and a celebration of the legends created by some of the most distinguished names in sporting history.

While the earliest evidence of organized running can be traced back to Egypt in 3800 BCE, the modern sport of track and field evolved from rural games and church and folk festivals, and rules were drawn up in the final quarter of the 19th century in those advanced societies where enough people had the leisure time to indulge their fancies. Today, in addition to the running events, track and field includes such events as the high jump, pole vault, long jump, shot, discus, javelin, hammer, and decathlon. The Historical Dictionary of Track and Field covers the history of this sport through a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 500 cross-referenced entries on key figures, places, competitions, and governing bodies within the sport. This book is an excellent access point for researchers, students, and anyone wanting to know more about the history of track and field.
