Olympic Records

Noteworthy Olympic athletes from around the globe fill the pages of this Incredible Sports Records series (6 titles) entry. From most-decorated (Michael Phelps) to mind-numbingly fast (speed skater Lee Sang-hwa), these competitors have left their marks on the games. One- and two-page sections zoom in on a record-setting team or individual and sport large photos overlaid with stats and a short paragraph explaining the significance of their victories. A mix of summer and winter sports are represented by a balanced selection of male and female athletes. The book’s broad scope keeps its content understandably light but current through the 2016 Summer Olympics. Its pick-me-up appeal will land it in the hands of browsers and sports buffs, and the recent Pyeongchang winter games will further boost its popularity.
