The Summer Olympics: Fascinating Facts

The Summer Olympics have featured some of the greatest performances in all of sports, and some of the most unusual and bizarre moments ever seen in competition, too. Did you know that painting used to be an Olympic event? And plunging, too. Or how about that a 10-year-old competed in gymnastics and a 72-year-old won an Olympic medal in a shooting event to become the oldest to ever do so? In Fascinating Facts, we take you back to some of the most intriguing moments in the history of the Summer Olympics. There is the gymnast who competed with a broken kneecap; a boxing referee who was assaulted in the ring and much more. Every title in The Summer Olympics: On the World Stage explores the athletes and the episodes that combine to make the Games the greatest sporting spectacle in the world.
