Book Description

1 May 2012
The return of the Olympic Games to London offers an opportunity not just to cheer home the latest generation of British sporting legends but to celebrate the achievements - and extraordinary sacrifices - of past winners. In Golden Years, Clive Ellis turns back the clock to tell the story behind every British victory at the summer Games since the war. He draws on contemporary reports to capture the mood of the moment; he explores the effect of Olympic gold medals on lives and lifestyles; and he reflects the bumpy journey from amateur ideals to professional realities. Clive Ellis has spoken to more than 30 gold medallists, as well as widows, children, coaches and colleagues. The result is an informative, lively and anecdotal insight into what it takes to produce an Olympic champion.
