The London 2012 Olympic Games was the biggest sporting event ever to be staged in Great Britain. The Greatest Show on Earth relives every important moment from every day of the London 2012 Olympic Games, from the Opening Ceremony on Friday 27 July to the Closing Ceremony on Sunday 12 August, recording the joy and exultation of the Olympic gold medallists as well sympathetically remembering some of the hard-luck stories. The book is structured in such a way that each day's activities are covered, the great stories, outstanding achievements and heroic efforts, and all are brought to life by stunning action photographs. To conclude each day, there are potted highlights and, sport by sport, a list of all the medals awarded. For every sports fan, The Greatest Show on Earth will be the perfect keepsake from a fantastic summer.
