First there were the Ancient Olympic Games - where men were naked, and women were banned. Next came the weird Wenlock Olympics - with eccentric events like the perilous pig chase and the potty pound of tea race. Now you can enjoy the Modern Olympic Games, started by a bright spark in 1896, and still a roaring success in the 21st century. This illuminating guide tells you everything you need to know, from the absolute torch-ure of Flaming Olympic training, to some scorching performances dating back as far as 776 BC. PLUS sizzling spectators, hot gossip and some blazing Olympic rows. If you want to be in the know, get The Knowledge!
