Official Olympic Reports

Recommended Posts

I would like to know about which Reports anyone from this forum have.

I collect Olympic Reports and I am looking where I can buy the rest of the collection (not here of course) at a reasonable price (some people simply don´t have any idea of a reasonable reserve price).

Right now (10/17/03) I have bought:

-1896 Athens Report (reprint made in 1996)

-1980 Lake Placid Report

-1988 Calgary Report

-1992 Barcelona Report (w/out vol. 5)

-1996 Atlanta Report

If anyone reads this, I would be happy to hear other opinions.

I got both from Ebay.

eBay, huh? Looks like the auction web site gets such reports on sale from time to time.

But the bloody bid books are few and far between!

Barcelona, Atlanta and Calgary books were available to the general public.

You can buy the 5-volume Barcelona books at the Barcelona Olympic Foundation (http://www.fundaciobarcelonaolimpica.es/ and send an e-mail asking for it), I bought the Atlanta report almost new by US$ 100 + shipping at Amazon used books.

However, to find those I have to search like ####!!!

what websites do you get the reports from. Does anyone know where you can get the sydney reports from and atlant and barcelona from

Go to AAFLA.org and check the online reports they have.

The 1992 Barcelona report, like I said, at FBO (check previous post)

1996 Atlanta at Amazon and other main online sites.

For the 2000 Sydney report, there was an australian company that was selling (quite expensive US$ 400, considering it is not as huge as the Barcelona or Atlanta) the report, but I don´t know the web address. I can check the e-mail....

eBay had the Innsbruck 76 and Lake Placed ones recently, but were ex-library books, and thus I didnt bid - I know how books less than 20-25 years old look at my local library!!

It depends...

The Montreal Report I have is coming from a library but it is as good as new.
