This review is from: Olympic Game: The Story of The Great Dorando and The Great Pretender (Kindle Edition)
At the 2008 Olympics, I can briefly recall my parents telling me about the incident years ago with the man who collapsed before the finish line and I could not understand why he was a hero. I wasn't really interested in the Olympics as, for me, they were being held in a faraway country with athletes about whom I knew very little, but since they are being held in Great Britain this year I have become more and more interested in these events and why they have been bringing people together. I was then recommended this book by a friend and I now understand why Dorando Pietri's story is so influential and why the games are so important today. What I like about this book is that Bryant tells us the whole story; it's not just about Dorando's determination to succeed but also about a desperate man's hunger to be part of something big and something that affects people the world over. The London 2012 Olympics really are an event not to be missed, just like this book!
