This vintage book contains an illustrated guide to athletics written by F. A. M Webster. Originally intended for teachers, instructors and coaches, it provides simple descriptions and instructions, offering the reader a fantastic introductory guide to athletics and related subjects. Contents include: "For Parents and Schoolmasters", "Sprinting", "Hurdling", "The Quarter Mile", "The Half Mile", "One Mile and Over", "Cross-country Running", "Relay Racing", "The Steeplechase", "Field Events", "For Games Masters and Coaches", etc. 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). 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.
