CELEBRATE THE MAGIC AND EXCITEMENT OF THE LONDON 2012 GAMES WITH THE ONLY OFFICIAL COMMEMORATIVE BOOK.

The only official commemorative chronicle of the Games, London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games: The Official Commemorative Book will be published by Wiley on 12 October 2012 and is set to become the ultimate keepsake of this magnificent event.

Written by award-winning sports journalists, Tom Knight and Sybil Ruscoe, this definitive memento will trace each stage of the Olympic story, from winning the bid and the creation of the Olympic Park, through to the journey of the Torch Relay, the cultural Olympiad and the sporting victories that will make history at London 2012.  Beautifully illustrated throughout, readers will be able to relive the record breaking moments, the highs, the lows and the nail biting conclusions that will make the London 2012 Games a part of the nation’s history. 

Both the Olympic and Paralympic Games will be explored in detail and, with complete behind-the-scenes access to the events and the athletes taking part, readers can expect fascinating stories, iconic photographs and insights from the people who made it happen: elite athletes, Cultural Olympiad performers, architects and builders, volunteers and organisers. 

Full of sporting statistics, a table of medal winners and inspiring quotations, London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games: The Official Commemorative Book will capture the drama and passion of this global experience; an edition set to be treasured by generations to come.

 

The Official Commemorative Book is available from all UK bookshops and e-book retailers
