Содержание:
The shiny rings of the Olympic Games have grown tarnished over the years as doping, corruption, and other scandals rise to the surface. Those scandals are the tip of the iceberg, according to author Christopher A.Shaw, the lead spokesperson for several anti-Games groups. "Five Ring Circus" details the history of how Vancouver won the bid for the 2010 Games, who was involved, and what the real motives were. It describes the role of corporate media in promoting the Games, the machinations of government and business, and the opposition that emerged. Disturbing questions come to light: Why does the International Olympic Committee pay no taxes? Who are the real estate developers behind the Vancouver bid? Why are mega projects paid for with tax dollars? What are the true costs of the Games? The Olympic Games, once considered the pinnacle of athleticism and fair play, have become a cesspool of greed, backroom deals, and...

The Olympic Games Effect: How Sports Marketing Builds Strong Brands

The Olympic Games attract fans from all over the world with a diverse range of interests, from a passionate love of sports, to fervent nationalism, to the thrill of athletic competition. This book explains and examines why companies vie to be Olympic sponsors and the tangible and intangible returns they reap for their investment. Starting with a brief history of the Olympics, from the Ancient Greeks to now (including interesting parallels between the ancient and modern games), the author then shows why and how the Olympic Games have become one of the world's most powerful brands, and the resulting impact for companies that are Olympic sponsors. The book also examines why cities, including Beijing in 2008, invest billions in hosting the Games. From tragedy to astounding success, the Olympics have been the source of some of the most important stories of our times. Readers are provided with a clear understanding of the traditions that have shaped this unique event, as well as the...

Owning the Olympics: Narratives of the New China

From the moment they were announced, the Beijing Games were a major media event and the focus of intense scrutiny and speculation. In contrast to earlier such events, however, the Beijing Games are also unfolding in a newly volatile global media environment that is no longer monopolized by broadcast media. The dramatic expansion of media outlets and the growth of mobile communications technology have changed the nature of media events, making it significantly more difficult to regulate them or control their meaning. This volatility is reflected in the multiple, well-publicized controversies characterizing the run-up to Beijing 2008. According to many Western commentators, the People's Republic of China seized the Olympics as an opportunity to reinvent itself as the "New China" - a global leader in economics, technology, and environmental issues, with an improving human-rights record. But China's maneuverings have also been hotly contested by diverse global voices, including prominent...

Canada's Olympic Hockey History, 1920-2010: Officially Licensed by Hockey Canada and Hockey Hall of Fame

Hockey made its Olympic debut at the 1920 games in Antwerp. Canada’s lopsided victories on their way to the gold medal — 15-0 over Czechoslovakia, a 12-1 shellacking of Sweden — set the stage for what was to become a decades-long dominance. This book documents each Olympic appearance in exciting detail, complete with extensive archival photography and personal player accounts.
