Pound, Richard W.

SUMMARY

"You won't always agree with Dick Pound...but his 'no holds barred' approach to so many major issues will keep you reading all night long." -Dick Ebersol, Chairman, NBC Sports and Olympics"The Olympic Games exist for the benefit of the athletes and not the IOC. Many IOC members still don't get it; however, Dick Pound [a former Olympic swimmer] certainly does. His unique view from inside the Olympic Movement is told in his usual straightforward manner, with his special blend of idelism and cynicism." -Brian williams, CBC, Veteran Broadcaster and Olympic Host"The only man who could have written this book has done it with candor and style. A lucid and penetrating look at the five-ringed world, filled with Dick Pound's customary insight, frankness and wit. Inside the Olympics wins gold, silver and bronze." -John Powers, Boston Globe"Pound takes us through the Olympic landscape with insight and opinion and on one of the biggest problems we all face: drugs in sport, he has always stood shoulder to shoulder with the good guys." -Sebastian Coe, OBE, double Olympic Gold 1500-meter championPound, Richard W. is the author of 'Inside the Olympics A Behind-The-Scenes Look at the Politics, the Scandals, and the Glory of the Games', published 2004 under ISBN 9780470834541 and ISBN 0470834544.
