From the adrenaline-fuelled, heart-racing action on the ski slopes, be it men's downhill or snowboarding, the slick, ice-glazed chutes of the bobsleigh and luge runs or the imposing ski-jump hills, to the more stately atmosphere of the figure-skating arena or the highly-tactical action on the curling rink, and the raw physicality of ice hockey, winter sports cover a vast array of activities. "Winter Sports Records 2013" profiles the lot: outlining the origins and development of these sports, providing biographies of the sports' greatest practitioners and offering an eye-catching insight into winter sports' greatest stars. The latest in Carlton's ever-growing line of "World Records" books, "Winter Sports Records 2013" is a ground-breaking look at winter sports and is essential reading for sports fans of all ages.
