内容説明

The 1908 Olympic Games were controversial. There was almost constant bickering among the American team and the British officials. Because of the controversies, the 1908 Olympics have been termed "The Battle of Shepherd's Bush", referring to the site of the Olympic Stadium. Reports for the 1908 Olympics have been rare, and do not, for instance, contain results for archery, track and field athletics, football (soccer), gymnastics, motorboating and shooting. However, this work provides complete results for all events. The information presented is based primarily on 1908 sources. It covers the sites, dates, events, competitors and nations as well as the event results for all the 1908 events, including boxing, cycling, diving, fencing, field hockey, lacrosse, polo, racket sports, swimming, lawn tennis, tug-of-war, weightlifting, wrestling and yachting, among other sports. A series of appendices include information about the controversies surrounding the games.
