We made an effort to do this project not simply as a next set of different information about the Olympic games. It is an attempt to give you information in a comfortable form and in the most structured type like a compact pocket Reference book.
We try to make regular changes to the Reference book and now, in addition to statistics, it contains 14,924 athlete photos - winners of the summer and winter Olympic games since 1896.
What information can you find in the Reference book?
In the section Info you just choose what you need from the list of the Olympic games and get general information, bid history, medals table and some interesting facts about Olympics.
In the section Winners you choose what you need from the list of the Olympic games. Click on plus/minus sign to expand or collapse list of the programme of competitions, then choose the event and find out all the Olympic games winners. Search can be done on any level.
In the section Events you choose what you need from the list of Sports. Click on plus sign to find all events that are included in the Sport, then choose the event and find out all the Olympic games winners.

In the section Nations you choose what you need from the list of Nations and find out all the Olympic winners. You can refine your search by choosing from the list of the Olympic games.
