The suggestion that a host city can and should continue its Olympic connections past the duration of the celebration of the Olympic Games has increased in prominence in recent years as the expectation that each Games leaves an legacy has gained significance in Olympic circles. Selected elements of legacy that contribute to extending a positive Olympic experience and factors that mitigate against this will be discussed under four categories of contemporary Olympic legacy: sport, infrastructure, security and celebration. These categories were chosen as they span tangible and intangible, intended and unintended, legacy outcomes. Sydney was used as a case study Olympic city as it is now just over 10 years since the Olympic Games were held there, giving adequate time to evaluate any legacy outcomes.

In this paper I investigate the concept of sustainability, how the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has introduced sustainability reporting through its Olympic Games Impact (OGI) program, and how this monitoring relates to sport participation. To be truly sustainable in sport each Olympic Games should ensure that the practice of sport for the host community, especially recreational sport, is improved and measured. This is important as the Olympic Charter specifically mentions promotion of ‘sustainable development in sport’ (IOC, 2011a, p. 15), rather than ‘through sport’. In 2000 the IOC, as part of its growing interest in managing its information about the impacts of its Games,...

Australia is only a small player in the world’s political and economic landscapes, yet, for many decades, it has been considered to be a global powerhouse in terms of its sporting successes. In conjunction with this notion, the nation has long been portrayed as having a preoccupation with sport. This labelling has been seen as both a blessing and a curse. Those who value a Bourdieuian view of culture bemoan sport’s centrality to the national imagination and the consequent lack of media coverage, funding and prestige accorded to the arts. Other scholars question whether the popular stereotype of the Australian sportsperson is, in fact, a myth and that instead Australians are predominantly...

What remains of a great sporting spectacle after the last race is run or the final match is played? How can the vast expense of mounting such events be justified? What if there is nothing left behind or what if the legacy is negative, a costly infrastructure which is unused or a debt-ridden host city? The Routledge Handbook of Sport and Legacy addresses perhaps the most important issue in the hosting of major contemporary sporting events: the problem of ‘legacy’. It offers a rigorous, innovative and comparative insight into this contested concept from interdisciplinary and practical perspectives. Major events must now have a conscious, credible and defined policy for legacy to meet publi...
