Hilarious knitted versions of some of my favourite ever athletes. Mark Spitz is the best but where is Valery Borzov? Almost lost a star for that omission but my wife has promised to adapt one of the patterns to knit him.
Nutty knitting craziness, with some very funny pics. The Fosbury Flop is brilliant.
Then there's assorted actual athletes from over the years, all based around a very basic figure. I liked Mark Spitz in his stars & stripes trunks; Cathy Freeman in her bizarre hooded aerodynamic outfit; and Olga Korbut. More recent Names include Chris Hoy and Usain Bolt.
It is also worth having a look at Carol Meldrum's other books as there are some real gems and dozens of knitting, crochet and sewing projects to keep everyone occupied.
