Win! A selection of Olympic Games books, worth £42

Exclusive 220 website competition

We’ve teamed up with Heroes of Sport to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a selection of three Olympic Games-themed books, worth £42.

The books winging their way to that fortuitous 220 follower will be:

Olympic & World Records Book (£19.99)

The Olympic Games and World Records Book is a collection of the finest achievements on sport’s greatest platform and a celebration of the legends created by some of the most distinguished names in sporting history. It is essential reading for any fan of the Olympic Games – the greatest and most revered spectacle in world sport.

The 100 Greatest Olympians & Paralympians (£16.99)

“The 100 Greatest Olympians and Paralympians” is a celebration of the cream of world sporting endeavour stretching back 112 years. These 100 legends from the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games were more than special athletes, they took their sports to new levels of excellence. Each one’s achievements are described, not only in context of their extraordinary feats but also how, in many cases, they changed public perception. Some, like Jesse Owens in 1936, became torch-bearers for social change, others, such as Usain Bolt in 2008, simply made their sport ‘cool’ again.

Each biography has been painstakingly researched and is complemented by outstanding photographs capturing the essence of sporting greatness.

Team GB & Paralympics GB Activity Book (£4.99)

A fantastic book for young athletics fans who can’t wait to cheer on their team at the London Olympics! Kids will love getting their crayons, pens and pencils out to colour in the pages while learning all about Team GB and their favourite star athletes.

A brilliant way to keep children engaged and entertained, this book guarantees hours of coloring fun to last the entire Games!
