There's nothing more exciting and engaging than the Olympic Games. Athletes from across the globe unite to participate in the most exciting and vigorous competitions of their lives.

Whether you like cycling, playing softball, wrestling, or riding horses, the Olympic Guides will give you numerous tips on equipment, training, and improving your skills. Complete with up-to-date results from the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, these official U.S. Olympic Committee publications take a fascinating look at how to play sports, the history of sports, and everything in between.Olympism offers a fascinating look at the background, meaning, and purpose of the Olympic Games, along with up-to-date information on every Olympic sport. Whether you're serious about sports or just getting started, you'll enjoy learning about the origin of the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece. Olympism helps take the mystery out of watching the games and will deepen your appreciation of the Olympic spirit.
