Book Summary
Rio 2016 was, for Team GB, a success like no other Olympic Games. Apart from the 1908 London Games (22 nations competed in 110 events across 22 sports and only 37 of the 2,008 competitors - 676 British - were women), these were the most successful ever for Team GB, with 67 medals won, two more than at London 2012. This pictorial celebration of British sporting success recalls all the glorious moments, whether it be reasserting GB's dominance - in the Velodrome - or breaking new ground - in women's hockey. But there were almost as many outstanding achievements which resulted in silver and bronze medals and these are also covered in depth. Sport by sport, Team GB: Victorious tells how the medals were won, the key moments and tells some of the amazing stories of dedication, bravery, determination and heroism displayed by medals winners. The fantastic summer of sport in 2016 will live long in the memory, but when it fades, this book will bring those glorious moments back to vivid and spectacular life.
