What about the FIFTH Volume,
the one with the black covers?

Correct Title: The Results
(in four languages)

There is another book, referred to as
the "fifth volume," with black covers,
that was produced... that looks like it was part of
the Official Report.

It has been widely, incorrectly identified
by many organizations and collectors as part of
the Official Report.


This fifth volume is NOT part of
BUT if you can get it - yes - buy it!

The fifth volume is a compilation of the Results in a statistical manner. From the physical appearance of the volume it looks like it is part of the Official Report -- but it is not. It is a separate publication.

In previous Olympic Games similar Results were published in a different and less expensive format made available to the public. This 1992 volume of Results (black covers) was produced by the same team that produced the Official Report, but this volume was not made available to the public as were the other four volumes (red, blue, green and yellow covers).

The editor, Roma Cuyas, described these publications briefly in Volume III, on pages 369-370, with a photograph of the four volume Official Report.
