Summary
Jesse Owens wins four gold medals at the 1936 Olympics. Billie Jean King takes on Bobby Riggs in the Battle of the Sexes. Title IX is passed. This book looks at how particular events revolutionized a sport, how a contest of speed inspired a nation, or even how a humble victory affected the world. The twenty events featured in this book had profound social, political, and cultural importance and inspired athletes and spectators alike. Gitlin reveals the tremendous impact athletes have had on America—and the world—over the years
