Rogge's Games : establishing the Youth Olympic Games as a new event in the Olympic Movement / Svein Erik Nordhagen & Jon Helge Lesjø

Nordhagen, Svein Erik | Helge Lesjø, Jon

This paper illuminates why and how the Youth Olympic Games were established. It turns out that the formally unanimous decision to establish the event was taken in a contested terrain. Much attention has been put on the agency of the then president of the IOC, Jacques Rogge, and his role as an institutional leader is discussed in a context where the pressure of tradition is strong.
