Rio 2016, GB’s historic Olympic Games, London, Carlton Books, 2016. ISBN 978-1- 78097-946-5A superb 144 page souvenir of the Rio Games, arranged sport by sport with a report and pictures of every sport. The photos capture the GB medallists in action, with medals or in unguarded celebrations. Outstanding non-British performances are also recorded.
The book is a lovely reminder of the highs and successes of team GB with photos of the iconic venues as well as the nation’s heroes. I will treasure my copy and use it to recall the amazing achievement which made the nation proud.
