The 1912 Olympic Games
Slechts 1 resterend op voorraad
The 1912 Olympic Games held in Stockholm, Sweden, were the most “modern” Olympic Games yet celebrated and the most successful of the Modern Era to that date. Much of the success is credited to the influence of Viktor Balck, who is remembered as “The Father of Swedish Sports.” The 1912 Olympics also featured new innovations and events. A semiautomatic electrical timing device and a photo-finish camera were used, and the decathlon and modern pentathalon were new events. This work provides unusually extensive information on the sites, dates, competitors, and nations of the Stockholm games. Results for each event, incl. cycling, diving, fencing, rowing and sculling, shooting, tennis, water polo, and yachting, among others, are provided.
