The Diary of Sport: History, Facts & Figures from Every Day of the Year [9781785316289]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
The Diary of Sport brings together the most memorable moments and characters in sports history, in one enthralling diary. It's not just about football, rugby and cricket - there are highlights from lesser-known sports such as icosathlon, camogie and Haxey Hood as well as the obsolete Olympic events of one-armed weightlifting, two-handed discus, rope climbing and the swimming obstacle course. Read about the evolution of every major sport from humble beginnings to the multi-million pound businesses we know today. With an entry for every day of the year, you'll learn about the most significant contributions of the famous - and sometimes infamous - men and women who make the world of sport so compelling. Discover how sporting hostilities led to war, the sporting geniuses guilty of crass stupidity and the mediocre competitors who achieved glory with one inspired moment of sublime brilliance. There are underdogs, heroes and villains, gifted winners, spectacular losers and bizarre events aplenty in this page-turning compendium.
AUTHOR: Nick Weatherhogg has written several books on various topics. These include the semi-autobiographical Living with Depression, the unique quiz book Order Order Order and Read All About It, which lists bizarre and unusual newspaper headlines from around the world. Most recently Nick has written The Diary of the British Monarchy, which charts every key event of the British Royal Family dating back over 1000 years.
