Book Description

The year 2012 will surely go down in history as the greatest in the history of British sport. Hosting the Olympic Games in London meant that it was always going to be a year to savour, but no one dared imagine how spectacularly successful the Games would be for British athletes or that the event would be such an organisational triumph.

The hype and expectation was almost suffocating but in the end London 2012 exceeded everyone's wildest dreams.

And, just to rekindle the national euphoria, the Paralympic Games a few weeks later were also a huge success.

Add to that a first British victory for 76 years in a grand-slam tennis tournament, a British victory in the Tour de France and an fairytale comeback by Europe in the Ryder Cup and it is easy to see why many sports commentators think we may never have it so good again.

The Times is the sports newspaper of the year and its award-winning writers covered all these amazing stories and many more. In this Kindle Single you can revlive these great stories as they were reported from press boxes around the world.
