Symposium on The Legacy of The Olympic Games, 14-16 November 2002




The Symposium on the Legacy of the Olympic Games from 1984 to 2000 will be held from 14 to 16 November at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne. Organised jointly by the Olympic Studies Centre of the Autonomous University of Barcelona and the IOC Olympic Studies Centre in Lausanne, this Symposium's aim is to examine the different aspects of the legacy of the Olympic Games. Senior staff from past and future Games Organising Committees, Candidate Cities for organising the Games or other major sporting or cultural events, specialist researchers in sport and Olympism, as well as representatives from National Olympic Committees and Sports Federations, will be the principal speakers at this Symposium, which will be open to the media.



Wednesday 13 November 2002
The Olympic Golden Rings awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday 13 November at 7 p.m. in the Olympic Museum auditorium, before the official dinner for the Symposium on the Legacy of the Olympic Games. This contest, organised this year by the Olympic Museum, is held after each edition of the Games in order to reward the best production and coverage of the recent Games. This year, around 30 films from across the world, filmed at the XIX Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City, were entered in the competition. This ceremony will also be open to the media.
