The Olympics' 50 Craziest Stories

Citius, Altius, Fortius (Faster, Higher, Stronger) is the motto of the International Olympic Committee. After reading Les Woodland’s The Olympics’ 50 Craziest Storiesthe reader might wonder if the motto should be Sillier, Loonier, Crazier.

There is the gentle rower who was winning his race when he stopped his scull to avoid scattering a mother duck and her ducklings—we’ll let your read the book to find out how he did—and the American socialites who showed up for a golf game in Paris and accidentally ended up in the Olympic golf contest. There was so  much confusion that year they never learned one of them had become Olympic champion. Oh, and the men’s Olympic golf champion had actually journeyed to Paris to play tennis.

In addition to the 50 stories of competitors behaving badly, or at least oddly, Les Woodland has sprinkled collections of interesting and sometimes improbable Olympics facts throughout, making The Olympics’ 50 Craziest Stories fun from cover to cover.

Click here to learn more and to get your copy of The Olympics; 50 Craziest Stories in print, eBook or audiobook version.

Damiano Cunego

Pictured above is Damiano Cunego racing late in the 2004 Giro d'Italia.

In this picture by Fotoreporter Sirotti, Cunego, at the ripe old age of 22, is in the pink jersey (Maglia Rosa) of the Giro d'Italia's overall leader.

Cunego went on to win that Giro d'Italia. In 2004 Cunego also won the Giro del Trentino, Giro di Lombardia, Memorial Marco Pantani and several other prestigious races.

Then, the man who had been Junior World Champion in 1999 and looked to become another Merckx, came down with Epstein-Barr virus (the cause of mononucleosis) during the 2005 Giro.

Cunego recovered and went on to win the 2005 Japan Cup.

He would continue to win races, but never again with the same extraordinary ease he had displayed in 2004.

Cunego retired at the end of the 2018 racing season.

We have a Damiano Cunego photo gallery with a short summary of his career and listing of his major wins.

What you'll find in our site:

The Tour de France. Lots of information, including results for every single stage of every Tour.

Other important bike races: the Giro d'Italia, the Vuelta a España, along with the classics, stage races, national championships, world records, and olympics.

We keep a running record of the races going on in the current year, with results, photos, maps, etc. We've been doing this since 2001, so the results for this year as well as previous years are available here.

This site is owned and run by McGann Publishing. We're a micro-publisher specializing in books about cycling history. Interested? Here's information on our titles in print.

We are devoted to cycling and all of its characters and events. The sport's past matters to us. We've been interviewing anyone who will sit down and talk to us, then writing up the interviews, and collecting other stories about cycling. We have rider histories—the stories of individual riders, many by the great cycling writer Owen Mulholland. We have our oral history project—the results of our interviews. And we've collected lots of photos over the years, of racers, racing, manufacturing, etc., which we have arranged into photo galleries for your enjoyment.

Being in the bike business for many years, we had to opportunity to travel a lot in Europe, riding bikes, attending trade shows, etc. We've written up many of our travels, and had some contributions from others whose travels differed from ours.

What would the day be without the funnies? Our friend Francesca Paoletti has drawn a series of comics about bike related stuff, poking fun at us along the way.

If you are interested in bikes, sooner or later you will want to know some technical information about bikes. We have articles here about bike weight, how bike frames are prepped and assembled, selected bike parts, and others.

And then there's food! The bicycle runs on the human engine, and the human engine runs on food, so of course we're interested in that.

Along the way we've been privileged to meet many people in and around the bike business who do things we like. The folks whose ads are up there on the right are friends of ours who we believe conduct their business knowledgably and honorably; here are a few others who do stuff we like.
