Bryant asserts than much has changed over the years in regards to the Olympics, but not always for the better. Commercialism has eroded some of the original purpose and spirit of the games. Bryant is not one to wish that the clock could be turned back to the Edwardian era, but he is right to condemn the cheating and shift that has occurred within the Olympics. The games now belong to sponsors as much as spectators it seems.
Lords of the Olympics is full of anecdotes and argument and, as much as people may talk about Britain's future legacy in regards to the games we should equally shine a light upon our past and feel proud.
