They didn’t just become proud representatives of their countries/specific sports overnight. They learned, trained and honed their sporting skills to top-notch levels just so that they are able to have a fighting chance in obtaining the much-demanded gold medal.

It also provides an overview on all the necessary aspects of each sport including their history, rules, strategy and etiquette. Also attached are hundreds of photos and drawings so that learning can be easier and skills can be acquired much faster.
So, what are you waiting for?

Who knows, you might represent your country someday and may bring that Olympic gold medal home!
