From drug cheats and match-fixers to secret sex romps and bitten ears, the last hundred years of sports have seen some unbelievable controversies. In World Sporting Scandals, the most memorable and shocking of these incidents, featuring athletes and sporting events from all over the globe, are compiled in one revealing volume. Each scandal is explained in fascinating detail, with coverage of the background leading up to the event, the wrongdoing itself and the inevitable aftermath. The book features recent high-profile exposes, as well as stories from the annals of history - the Chicago White Sox throwing games for gangsters in 1919 and Hitler's refusal to shake Jesse Owens' hand. Full of intriguing behind-the-scenes insights and more dramatic plot twists than a soap opera, World Sporting Scandals is the ultimate guide to the sporting misdeeds and conspiracies that have rocked us in the last century.
