The Olympics holds the podium of the greatest sporting contest — an event that is 'global' in the truest sense of the term.

The Most Incredible Olympic Stories maps the phenomenal journey of this marvellous event through time immemorial—from its genesis to its glory days—with lore of myth, magic, and gallantry in every turn of its long-walked path, where dirty politics went hand in hand with fair play, universal fraternity was welcomed in the backdrop of a genocide, strong woman were often questioned about their 'womanhood', a fair-skinned man risked his glory to stand for the Black, the dark horse failed to surprise and the unpredictable often surprised.

Luciano has already unearthed numerous stories of sports, unveiling the myths behind, which have been read in fifteen languages. This time he curates the oldest sporting tale— a tale that becomes the narrative of a modern civilisation.
