Olympic history is filled with the unusual, the bizarre, and the unbelievable. The Olympic's Most Wanted™ chronicles 700 of the most outlandish competitors in the history of the winter and summer Olympics. Its seventy lists describe in humorous detail the Olympics’ most inept athletes, strangest events, most embarrassing performances, poorest losers, most outrageous cheaters, unlikeliest heroes, most notorious disqualifications, and more. Only here will you find out that Margaret Abbott won the gold medal in women’s golf in 1900 without realizing she was competing in the Olympics or that American Fred Lorz rode in a car for eleven of the twenty-six miles of the 1904 marathon. American tennis player Marion Jones won a bronze medal at the 1900 games without winning a match. Stella Walsh, 1932 gold medalist in the women’s 100-meter dash, was, in reality, a man. All this and more can be found in The Olympic's Most Wanted™.
