Sample text

Keeping pace with the evolution of the Games and IOC expectations, international Olympics advisor, Charlie Battle, has remarked, “In the more historic bids, cities used to talk about what they have…we have an airport and metro. Now, cities talk more about what they will have…” [20]. More than ever, the IOC and its Olympic agenda play a significant role in validating necessary infrastructural development that has more recently been identified as an essential product of the Games. 3 IOC Support for Growth and Sustainability 19 IOC Support for Growth and Sustainability The influence of the IOC in developing urban infrastructure becomes most prevalent during the bid process.

Prompted by the commission’s findings, the IOC officially embraced the concept of an Olympic Legacy in 2003 [9] and has further expanded it to encompass five categories—sports, society, environment, urban factors, and economics. Similarly, IOC President Jacques Rogge has consistently highlighted the expansion of IOC interests beyond the two weeks of sporting events to the “social responsibility of ensuring that the host cities bequeath a positive legacy” [10]. Under President Rogge’s leadership, the Olympic Legacy has become coined as the IOC’s raison d’être [11].

Challenging realities undermine the IOC’s best intentions. The IOC has placed an increased emphasis on a positive legacy only in so far as it supports the Olympic brand. While host cities experience some positive outcomes from hosting the Games, the time and finances put into executing an Olympic bid and the Games have a steep opportunity cost. Every bid city must judiciously consider if the cost of meeting IOC requirements brings a greater reward than the cost of a more direct investment in its citizens, such as support of health care or educational initiatives [12].
