DO YOU KNOW…
Who first climbed to the summit of Mount Cook?
How many New Zealanders have run a sub-4 minute mile?
lf the New Zealand public is not cheering their fellows on to make and break records, they may be discussing who was first, fastest and best. It was appropriate that television host, David Frost, examined record breaking in a series of programmes on our way of life.
Armchair arguments are inevitable about sport. Results and records have been obscured by time and scattered far and wide. DB SPORTING RECORDS OF NEW ZEALAND will provide a ready answer to these frustrating disputes; an indispensable book for the club room, the bar and the sportsman’s library.
Sydney Todd has provided the solution. He has compiled an exhaustive collection of facts and figures covering some 90 sports and games contested in New Zealand – more than 200,000 entries recording championship winners, their times, distances, scores… There are 135 photographs recalling famous sports personalities and their triumphant feats.
DB SPORTING RECORDS OF NEW ZEALAND is unique as a single volume source of information and inspiration for a nation of record breaking sportsmen.
Hardcover. 352 pages. In good preloved condition with the exception of minor tears to the dustcover.
