Published in association with the official Olympic Museum and the International Olympic Committee (IOC), "The Treasures of the Winter Olympic Games" brings to life, through more than 200 photographs and more than 20 removable artifacts, the glorious history of these Games. The inaugural Winter Olympic Games were held in 1924 in Chamonix, where the American Charles Jewtraw became the first gold medal winner when he triumphed in the 500 metres speed skate, now 20 Games on and the competition is one of the world's leading sports events. Learn of the incredible sporting exploits of such Olympic legends as A. Clas Thunberg (Finland), Sonja Henie (Norway), Gretchen Fraser (USA), Jean-Claude Killy (France), Torville and Dean (Great Britain) and Jarome Iginla (Canada) and then hold and study the unique memorabilia relating to each of the Games. This is the first time that the Olympic Museum have co-operated in producing an interactive book on the Winter Olympic Games, which contains facsimiles of important memorabilia from their exclusive archive - including important historical documents, tickets, programmes, collector cards, full-size posters, and even a personal letter from a US President - allowing readers to get closer to the sporting spectacle than has ever been possible before.
