Description - Illustrated Sports Encyclopedia: The Ultimate Guide to Sports from Around the World by DK

A children's illustrated reference guide to all types of sports

The ultimate guide to more than 100 top sports from around the world, from basketball to blade running.

Are you a team player? Do you have a steady aim? Maybe you are super fast or strong? Whatever your size or skill, there is a sport out there for you. The Illustrated Sports Encyclopedia is the ultimate guide to the diverse world of sport, from the best known ball-sports, athletics, and water sports to the most obscure racket sports and races (anyone for a game of pickleball?). The book showcases different sports by grouping them into categories including team sports, target sports, winter sports, wheels and motors, horse sports, and extreme sports. Dynamic photography brings the sports to life, and complements the clear explanations and artworks that describe the rules, equipment, competitions, and common terms.

A special section on the Olympic and Paralympic Games looks at their history, from the early Greek games right up to the present day. All Summer and Winter Olympic sports are clearly identified and explained, making the Illustrated Sports `Encyclopedia the must-have title for all young sports enthusiasts, particularly in the run up to the 2024 Paris Olympics.
