From their early beginnings as a few events in Olympia, Greece, to the winter and summer sporting events of recent years, the Olympic Games provide an exciting topic for this edition. Babe Didrikson’s rise to Olympic fame, the Heraea Games, the Special Olympics, the World Eskimo/Indian Olympics, the story of Jesse Owens’ rise to Athlete of the Year, and a feature on World Rowing Champions Judy and Carlie Geer are just some of the winners in this high-jumping issue.
