Description

This eBook includes interactive materials and videos.

The evolution of the Olympic Movement during the 20th and 21st centuries has resulted in several changes to the Olympic Games. Some of these adjustments include the creation of the Winter Games for ice and winter sports, the Paralympic Games for athletes with a physical disability, and the Youth Olympic Games for teenage athletes. The IOC has had to adapt to the varying economic, political, and technological realities of the 20th century.

  • Worst Book Ever

    This crappy book has not grown my brain. It is too confusing. When I tried to get into the book, it gave me gibberish. Also, it is not like a book were you flip the pages, it is a book where it is only one page and then the story is over. Don't read this people
