Finding Help When your child needs additional teaching, tutoring or special education services. Now in its eighth edition and published in anticipation of the Vancouver Games, The Complete Book of the Winter Olympics has been expanded to include the rules and scoring for all the upcoming events, as well as the results from the Turin Games.
The book also looks at the history of each Olympic event from inception to the present day, including discontinued events and the four skating events first featured, before the creation of the Winter Olympics, in the London Summer Olympics. From speed skating to snowboarding, bobsled to ice hockey, the book gives the medals tables, timings, distances, and scores. But much more than a statistical compendium, the book also offers an abundance of Winter Olympic history, anecdotes, and lore, bringing alive the most dramatic moments from the Games and celebrating the many extraordinary individuals who have competed.
Jaime Loucky currently lives in Washington, DC, where he works at an international development organization. The Vancouver Edition is the third book on the Olympics that they have written together. He has been a television and radio commentator for the Olympic Games since
