Author Bio: John Goodbody

John Goodbody covered the London Olympics for the Sunday Times—his twelfth successive Summer Games. He was sports news correspondent for the London Times for nearly twenty-two years, winning journalistic awards in every decade with the paper, most recently being voted Sports Reporter of the Year in 2001 and getting the prize in 2002 for the Sports Story of the Year. He covered his first Olympics in 1968, alongside Barry Davies, and has subsequently written several books on the event, including The Olympic Movement for the International Olympic Committee. Since November 2010, he has been editor of The Olympian, the newsletter for former British competitors at the games. As a competitor, he broke British junior weightlifting records, was a member of the national judo squad in 1970, was Cambridge University’s number one shot-putter, and in 1991, aged forty-eight, he became the oldest Briton for eighteen years to swim the English Channel.
