Each chapter discusses not only the race itself, but also the preliminary rounds, dramas and controversies and includes interviews with all the key players, not just the champion. Immaculately researched and written in an entertaining style 100 Metre Men brings to life some of the greatest athletes who ever set foot on a running track.
