Economics, Legacy & The New Norm
Olympism in Action Forum - Working Zone 6A discussion. Hosting major sporting events is frequently used by city and national governments as a catalyst for positive change, whether it be increasing tourism, expanding transportation infrastructure, or raising a city’s global stature.
However, what is initially planned by organizers as positive legacy initiatives takes time to be realised and is sometimes in stark contrast to the post-event expectations.
The organisers of the Olympic Games have faced challenges such as oversized venues or venues that are underutilised for some years before finding a viable future. Considering these challenges of the past, the International Olympic Committee has developed a set of 118 new reforms, which comprise “The New Norm.”
These reforms aim to completely transform how the Olympic Games are delivered (from candidature phase to Games organization) and how they can create an impactful, positive legacy.
In this working zone, leading economists and experts will discuss challenges of bidding for and hosting the games and debate what needs to be done to ensure the Games are organised in a more economically beneficial and flexible way.
Facilitator: Sonali Shah, Broadcaster & Journalist, United Kingdom; Fraser Bullock, COO & CFO, Salt Lake City 2002, United States; Holger Preuss, Professor, Johannes Gutenberg-University, Germany; Andrew Zimbalist, Chairperson and Robert A. Woods Professor of Economics, Smith College, United States
Protecting Athletes: Education & Deterrence
Olympism in Action Forum - Working Zone 1B discussion. In a world where science and technology innovate at unprecedented levels, notably in the methods of detecting prohibited drugs, it appears that it would be difficult for any athlete to conceal doping. However, experts believe it is becoming more challenging to fight doping.
From stricter sanctions to education, there are many directions to explore regarding more efficient deterrence and prevention methods. Focusing resources on the deterrence and prevention of doping, as opposed to solely focusing on post-factum efforts, could prove more effective and efficient.
Featuring a variety of athlete perspectives, this session will explore which deterrence methods have worked, where efforts need to be further expanded.
Facilitator: Adnan Nawaz, News Anchor, TRT World, Turkey; Muffy Davis, 7-time Paralympic Medallist & Governing Board Member, International Paralympic Committee, United States; Kady Kanouté Tounkara, Zone 2 Chair, Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa, Mali; Nicky Van Rossem, Project Officer, Belgian Olympic & Interfederal Committee, Belgium
Protecting Athletes: Considerations on Doping & Fair Play
Olympism in Action Forum - Working Zone 1A discussion: What constitutes doping and fair play may not always be as black and white as it seems. Doping raises many questions, which can oftentimes differ depending on the context.
For example, all athletes do things to optimize their physical performance: they might wear special clothing, they might undergo surgery to recover from an injury, they might use treatments to acclimatize to higher altitudes, and they might use drugs to increase muscle mass, among other things. All of the aforementioned actions, except for using drugs to increase muscle mass, are usually seen as acceptable.
This session features a lively debate between two leading academics to stimulate new thinking around a commonly discussed issue.
Facilitator: Adnan Nawaz, News Anchor, TRT World, Turkey; Michael McNamee, Professor of Applied Ethics, College of Engineering, Swansea University; Andy Miah, Chair in Science Communication & Future Media, School of Environment & Life Sciences, University of Salford
