We made an effort to do this project not simply as a next set of different information about the Olympic games. It is an attempt to give you information in a comfortable form and in the most structured type like a compact pocket Reference book.
We try to make regular changes to the Reference book and now, in addition to statistics, it contains 16,762 athlete photos - winners of the summer and winter Olympic games since 1896.
What information can you find in the Reference book?
In the section Info you just choose what you need from the list of the Olympic games and get general information, bid history, medals table and some interesting facts about Olympics.
