Synopsis: From Jim Thorpe, who in 1912 was hailed as the "world's greatest athlete", to Eric Heiden, who swept five speedskating events at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York, Olympic athletes have provided some of the greatest moments in sports' history.

Review: "As with many Lucent series, this one uses primary-source material as much as possible and is careful to include important contextual information...the text is substantial and interesting."
-- Booklist, Top 10 Biography Series for Youth (October 2001) (Booklist 20011015)

"Brief but solid biographies...The accounts focus on how the subjects broke down barriers and gained acceptance for themselves and for the women who would follow them. Along with a list a books for further reading, this feature provides an helpful starting point for readers wanting to find out more...A useful addition to collective-biography collections."
-- School Library Journal (August 2002) (School Library Journal 20020801)

"Interesting details abound. The black-and-white photos and primary-source documents...add interest and authenticity. A wealth of information is packed into these biographical sketches."
-- School Library Journal (July 2002) (School Library Journal 20020701)

"This title will be useful for reports and casual reading."
-- School Library Journal (January 2002) (School Library Journal 20020101)

"The book is well organized, and the numerous black-and-white illustrations- of the...public figures and places - complement the text."
-- School Library Journal (June 2001) (School Library Journal 20010601)

"This well-organized and thoroughly researched book begins with a brief but well-written forward and an even better introduction. An attempt was also made to include a cross section of time periods, nations, and events. A winner."
-- School Library Journal (April 2001) (School Library Journal 20010401)

"This publisher's excellent titles for young adults promise lasting library usage and are highly recommended picks. All are fine, lasting coverages which provide plenty of ideas for debate and study."
-- Children's Bookwatch (December 2000) (Children's Bookwatch 20001201)

"Each well-crafted entry includes both personal and professional information that helps students understand the context in which each author wrote. Quotes help to illustrate the personalities behind the printed pages. A wide variety of black-and-white photographs complement the text. Chapter notes are included, as is an annotated list for further reading, and a detailed index. This volume will be well used for...research papers and will be a worthwhile introduction."
-- School Library Journal (November 2000) (School Library Journal 20001101)
