Berlin in 1936: old and new work on the Nazi Olympics

Description

No sooner had the Seoul Olympics drawn to their successful conclusion than Barcelona, the Catalonian capital, began preparations to host the Twenty-fourth Games in 1992. The Seoul Olympics were the least beset by political problems in recent times, although the extent to which this was achieved by police surveillance and sympathetic TV producers we can only guess. Like previous games they were a triumph for commercialism and nationalism, but since these have been a normal part of the Olympics for so long now it was the drug issue that rivalled brilliant sporting performances for the headlines

Mapping the Olympic growth machine

Description

Theories of growth machines and urban regimes have informed the study of urban political economy for more than three decades, but these theories remain focused on intra-urban processes. Using a case study of the bidding process and the planning of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, we explore the transnational dimensions of the urban growth machine and explore common aspects between the growth machine and regime theory literature and the literatures on the entrepreneurial city and transnational urban policy transfers. Through its evolving networks with other urban regimes, Vancouver's growth machine provides a ready forum in which local elites can acquire specialized knowledge on new urban entrepreneurial strategies elsewhere. Actors situated in different parts of the local growt

The four 'knowns' of sports mega events

Description

This article uses a piece of writing in The Guardian newspaper by the philosopher Slavoj Zizek ('The empty wheelbarrow', 19 February, p. 23, 2005) about the former US Defence Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, as a framework by which to reflect critically on major international sporting events, or sports mega-events. It suggests that it is an academic's duty to look critically at the assumptions, beliefs and misrepresentations that are often suppressed, or, perhaps more accurately, repressed, about sports mega-events. The article is based on an analysis of research and writing about sports mega-events, some of which offer more comprehensive reviews of the literature. It is argued that in their enthusiasm to host and support sports 'megas', politicians, senior administrators of sport, corpora

Sochi 2014: Politicisation of European Sport

Description

South Ossetia has been in conflict with the state of Georgia since just before the dissolution of the Soviet Union in the early 1990’s. The dispute is essentially based on South Ossetia’s wish for independence; a wish supported by The Russian Federation. Despite great tension and armed conflict between Georgia and Sochi, Russia still managed to emerge victorious in the competition to win the right to host the Sochi 2014 Winter Games

Funding: Is an Olympic CEO worth more than a Prime Minister

Description

The new Conservative - Liberal Democrat Government coalition recently announced an emergency budget to fight the financial woes that Britain is currently facing. One significant element of their austere approach was to effectively wage war on publically funded quangos in a bid to eliminate unnecessary spending and re-establish public faith in the Governments’ ability to financially manage the country

Image and branding: computer generated Smurfs

The new London 2012 mascots, unveiled in May 2010, represented the work of 18 long months and the involvement of 40 focus groups, and were the subject of much excitement and anticipation. However, immediately after their unveiling, they were met with strong criticism, mirroring the type of response voiced when the London 2012 logo was unveiled in 2007 at a cost of £400,000

Sponsorship

Description

LOCOG, headed by the charismatic Lord Sebastian Coe, have raised £600m in sponsorship revenue from 26 corporate backers for the London 2012 Games. No doubt, corporations are still seduced by the opportunity to bask in the reflected glory of the Gold medal victories of athletes, and to view their own logo standing proudly next to that of the Olympic rings. However, such an achievement can still be considered no mean feat, given the recessionist culture that we are currently living in. When costs are being cut, jobs have been lost, market fears are constantly rearing their ugly heads, and global investment banks are subject to fraud investigation, how do the Games continue to attract such notable funding?

An associated desire to maximise brand visibility for those companies who have not secured official sponsor rights at the Olympics and Paralympics has led to an equally rapid rise in a phenomenon know as “ambush marketing”, where organisations attempt to promote themselves as official sponsors, when they are not

Impact of the news International scandal and the 2012 Games

Description

Sponsorship of the Olympics is important to both the organisers of the Games and the sponsoring organisation. The TOP Partner Programme is the official sponsorship programme of the 2012 games and is likely to account for up to 40% of the total revenue of the Games. This resource examines the case of News International which was appointed as an official partner of Team GB, with exclusive rights and access to the athletes for their stories, but subsequently dropped by Team GB and LOCOG, following the 'phone tapping scandal

Casting a shadow over the future of the Paralympic Games

Description

Despite the increasing commercialisation of the Olympics, the Paralympics face a constant struggle to cover the operational costs of their Games. Indeed, the £80 million funding of the 2012 Paralympics is nowhere near the costs of putting the games on. This problem is exacerbated by the global financial crisis and disputes over the control of media rights. Complex negotiations over these rights have led to uncertainty over the future of the 2018 Winter Paralympics at Pyeongchang in South Korea

Ramadan and The Games

Description

London 2012 will see a clash of timing between the Olympic Games and Ramadan (which runs from 21st July to 20th August). It is estimated that about 3000 Muslim athletes will be taking part in these Games, and research from previous Games shows that fasting during the day can aversely affect the performance of some athletes. This resource examines the measures taken by LOCOG and the IOC to help mitigate against such effects, by providing prayer rooms at all venues and promoting the Olympic Village as a multi-faith centre
