Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Going for Gold gives the lowdown on all the key Olympic sports, from rowing and gymnastics to cycling, athletics and swimming. It also looks at the new Olympic sports - rugby sevens, kite surfing and golf, focussing on the format of each sport, how it is scored, and the key rules.

The book also gives some background information to the Olympic and Paralympic Games, their history and traditions, and looks ahead to the Games in Rio in 2016. It explores the Olympic village, the venues for the events, and how Brazil is preparing for the arrival of the world's most famous, and best-loved sporting event.

Feature boxes on every spread look at highest-achieving Olympians and Paralympians in each sport - their triumphs, the challenges they have overcome, and how they have become such success stories.

Fun, fact-filled text and a bright, engaging design make this the perfect Olympic title for children of 9+.

If you've enjoyed getting ready for Rio, why not find out all about the history of the Olympics, in The Olympics Ancient and Modern, another title in the series.
