"Athletics of To-day" is a vintage guide to the sport of athletics written by master of the subject and four-time Olympic games participant, F. A. M. Webster. This interesting volume deals with the history, development, and training of athletics, making it highly recommended for athletes, trainers, and others with an interest in the subject. Frederick Annesley Michael Webster (1886 - 1949) was a British athletics coach and author, and soldier active during World War One. He wrote profusely on the subject of athletics, with his best known book being "Athletics in Action" (1931). Contents include: "The Growth of Modern Athletics", "The Sprints--100 to 300 yards", "The Event Sui Generis--400 Yards", "The Short Middle Distances--600 to 1,000 Yards", "Classical Distances", "Relay Racing", "The Marathon Race", "The Long Distances--30 to 100 Miles", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on athletics.
