Revived in 1896 by the prompting of Baron de Coubertin, the Olympic Games have become the largest sporting occasion in the world. From a nine sport Olympiad attracting 241 athletes, the Games have grown into a 28 sport spectacular attracting over 10,000 competitors. From Spiridon Louis’ triumph in the first marathon to Mark Spitz and Carl Lewis’ multi-medal efforts, this is the ultimate history of more than one hundred years of sporting endeavours. A fascinating documentary detailing the history of the Olympic Games from their origin to the present day.
