Celebrating the Olympics

"Azerbaijan at the 27th Olympic Games - Sydney" celebrates the involvement of Azerbaijan's athletes in the Olympics since 1952. During the Soviet period, athletes competed under the umbrella of the Soviet Union but were never able to gain recognition for the own republic. It wasn't until 1992 at Barcelona, Spain that Azerbaijan raised its own flag.

Of the 4,000 copies of the book that were published, many will be taken to the games in Sydney in September to exchange with other Olympic teams.

The National Olympic Committee and Ministry of Youth and Sports organized this book, the first major "coffee-table" edition produced in both Azeri Latin (not Cyrillic) and English.
