The Sunday Times Great Sporting Moments Summary


The Sunday Times Great Sporting Moments: 50 Momentous Stories in Sports History by Edited by Alan English

The Sunday Times Great Sporting Moments brings to life the greatest memorable sporting triumphs and disasters : from Jesse Owens at the Berlin Olympics to Tiger Woods's triumph at the US Open. Sporting dramas, endurance, tragedies and scandals - all are covered in this lavishly illustrated tribute to the world's greatest sporting moments.

Sport and the 20th century are inextricably intertwined. What began as a pastime for gentlement amateurs is today an industry generating billions and stirring passions across the globe. Great sporting triumphs - and disasters - have provided some of the century's most enduring images and most imperishable memories.

The Sporting Century looks in detail at 50 of the most extraordinary and remarkable of these events: Jesse Owens at the Berlin Olympics, Roger Bannister's first four-minute mile, Brazil's magical third World Cup win in 1970, Ian Botham's single-handed demolition of the Australians in 1981. It also covers scandal and tragedy: the Munich air crash, the Hillsborough disaster, Ben Johnson's disgrace in Seoul. These, too, played their part in moulding our collective sporting memories and rank among the century's most memorable sporting stories.

Written entirely by leading sports journalists at the Sunday Times and based on the paper's sensational year-long coverage of the century's top sports stories, this is sports writing at its most compelling: provocative, incisive and dramatic.

With sales of over 20,000 in its first edition, the book is now updated and reissued in paperback to include the finest sporting moments of the last two years. Tiger Woods triumph at the US Open and Steve Redgrave's extraordinary achievement in winning gold at his fourth successive Olympics are added to this gallery of sporting greats.
