Ever wonder where the figure skating terms axel, salchow, and lutz came from? Or why a curling tournament is called a "brier"? And how about a "haymaker" in boxing or a "high five" in any sport? Well, Doug Lennox, the world champion of trivia, is back to score touchdowns, hit homers, and knock in holes-in-one every time with a colossal compendium of Q&A athletics that has all anyone could possibly want to know from archery and cycling to skiing and wrestling and everything in between. What’s more, Doug goes for gold with a wealth of Winter and Summer Olympics lore and legend that will amaze and captivate armchair fans and fervent competitors alike.
- What do the five Olympic rings and their colours represent?
- Why does the winner of the Indianapolis 500 drink milk in victory lane?
- Who was the first player ever to perform a slam dunk in a basketball game?
- Why are golfers’ shortened pants called "plus-fours"?
- When was the Stanley Cup not awarded?
- Why does the letter k signify a strikeout on a baseball score sheet?
