Mark Witzer presents the fascinating history of the Olympic games from past to present day – just in time for Rio 2016!

Highlights of Every Olympic Games is Witzer's newest ebook, full of enthusiasm for the ancient games. 

Just in time for the Olympic Games in Rio, Mark Witzer delves deep into the past to provide an indepth look at the history of the Olympic Games. His fascinating ebook featuring the best bits of every Summer and Winter Olympics since 1896, the ebook is an absorbing history of athletics from ancient times to the modern day.

This ebook is a must for sports fans and quiz enthusiasts of all ages. Not only does Witzer intend to provide a detailed history, he also hopes that his ebook may be used as “a point of inspiration for those of all ages who seek to achieve their full potential during their participation in these great sports”. It is specifically designed in five parts to ensure easy reading and facilitate speedy fact accessibility.

Witzer’s captivating account includes the almost forgotten story of the first three British Olympic champions and a carefully researched list of their most important races, as well as an explanation of the exciting events of the titanic battle to run the first sub four-minute mile.

Reference is made to the latest progressions in athletics in terms of nutrition, fitness, drugs and doping, as well as developments in sports psychology. There is also an appendix of, arguably, the greatest champions across all sports and a list of the current outdoor World Athletic records for men and women. There are highlights of the 2015 World Athletic Championships and finally, a calendar of upcoming events.

Since his retirement from his career as a computer analyst, Mark Witzer has turned his talents to writing and has already published three books. His newest ebook, Highlights of Every Olympic Games, reflects his own passion for sport and writing combined; stemming from his love of athletics and his own youth spent running for Queen’s Park Harriers. Mark is now available to interview about Highlights of Every Olympic Games, and copies of his ebook are available for review – either as PDF/epub, or via NetGalley
