Product Details

The 1960 Olympic Winter Games were a long-shot effort that succeeded beyond the wildest expectations.

Working in a sparsely populated valley in the Sierra Nevada with only rudimentary facilities,
organizers created a world-class Olympic site in four years.

For the only time in Olympic history, the venues and athlete residence halls
were located in a compact, intimate setting that encouraged sportsmanship and interaction between athletes.

There was elaborate pageantry in the ceremonies and decorations.

The underdog American ice hockey team won the first-ever USA gold medal in that sport.
American figure skaters swept gold in the individual events.
Well-trained Soviet and Scandinavian athletes dominated the speed skating and cross-country skiing events.
American women proved their mettle in the Alpine skiing events.
German skiers made surprise upsets in the Nordic combined and ski jumping contests.
And CBS-TV was there to capture the most exciting moments
and make groundbreaking live broadcasts to American audiences.

This book features rare images taken by official Olympic photographer Bill Briner that are complemented with images from public and private collections, some never before published. Using extensive research and oral histories from Olympic athletes and officials, award-winning author David C. Antonucci brings the VIII Olympic Winter Games to life.
