Provides a complete look at the athletes who have set new world records in track and field athletics, selects the three greatest performers in each event and projects future world record marks for the year 2015.

Bannister's mile, Beamon's long jump, and Joyner-Kersee's heptathlon are but a few of the outstanding performers and performances captured so vividly through stories and hundreds of accompanying photographs. The book also selects and highlights its "Gold, Silver, and Bronze meddalists," the three best athletes ever to compete in each event.
