Synopsis

After the decathlon was introduced in the 1912 Olympic Games, the All-Around, a one-day, ten-event track and field contest of endurance, speed, and strength was displaced. The lives and careers of 22 of the greatest All-Around men, as well as the history of the event itself, are finally given the treatment they deserve in this richly detailed book, which includes more than 20 photos.
