Olympic Review looks to Vancouver
The latest edition of Olympic Review Magazine focuses on the upcoming Olympic Winter Games in 2010 with a 26 page cover story that looks at Vancouver’s seven-year journey from its election as host city to the celebration of one of the world’s biggest sporting events. The cover feature is made up of different elements that reflect the wide range of challenges faced by a host city. These include showing how the unique “Look of the Games” was created for Vancouver as well as showcasing a selection of the works of Aboriginal art which will grace the venues of the 2010 Winter Games. The team of Olympic Review writers also look forward to the sporting performances to be delivered in February 2010 with exclusive interviews of leading winter sports stars who are aiming to strike gold at the Games in Vancouver in a piece entitled “Star Attractions”.
Also in this issue, Duff Gibson, gold medal winner in skeleton for Canada in Turin speaks of his Olympic experience in “My Games”, an Olympic Review regular feature.
115 Years of Olympic Review Magazine
The Olympic Review Magazine was first published in 1894, the year of the founding of the International Olympic Committee by Pierre de Coubertin, as a means to disseminate Olympic information to as broad an audience as possible. Over the years the official publication of the IOC has undergone various tweaks and changes and is now an 84-page full-colour glossy magazine in three languages (English, French and Spanish) and posted around the world. This quarterly magazine offers the news and activities of the IOC as well as in-depth feature pieces on topics and issues that matter to the Olympic Movement.
