Book Summary

Published in association with the official Olympic Museum and the International Olympic Committee (IOC), The Treasures of the Olympic Winter Games brings to life, through more than 200 photographs and over 20 removable artefacts, the glorious history of the Olympic Winter Games. The inaugural Olympic Winter Games were held in 1924 in Chamonix, France. Charles Jewtraw of the United States became the first gold medallist when he triumphed in the 500 metres Speed Skate. Since that first edition, there have been 20 more Olympic Winter Games and they have become on one of the world's leading sports events. In The Treasures of the Olympic Winter Games you can discover the incredible sporting exploits of such global Olympic legends such as A. Clas Thunberg (Finland), Sonja Henie (Norway), Gretchen Fraser (USA), Jean-Claude Killy (France), Sidney Crosby (Canada) and Meng Wang (China) and then hold and study the unique memorabilia relating to each of the Games. This is the first time that the Olympic Museum have co-operated in producing an interactive book on the Olympic Winter Games, which contains facsimiles of memorabilia from their exclusive archive - including important historical documents, tickets, programmes, collectable cards, full-size posters, and even a personal letter from a President of the United States of America. The Treasures of the Olympic Winter Games allows readers to get closer to the sporting spectacle than has ever been possible before.
