The International Olympic Committee (IOC)’s website www.olympic.org first came online on the occasion of the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Summer Games. At that time it served as a one-way communications tool broadcasting institutional content. Today, www.olympic.org has become the portal of the Olympic Movement, delivering not only information relating to the IOC, but all there is to know about past and future Games, sports, athletes, medal results, Olympic collectibles, the Olympic Museum and much more, including a specific section where visitors can ask questions directly to Olympic experts.
