Olympic Games Winners - Info

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 18,873 athlete photos - winners of the summer and winter Olympic games since 1896.
