The Victorian Olympic Council : an overview of its contribution to the Australian Olympic Movement / Richard Baka, Rob Hess

Baka, Richard | Hess, Rob

The Victorian Olympic Council (VOC) was initially established in 1911, pre-dating Australia's National Olympic Committee (NOC), which did not come into existence until 1914. What is unique about this situation is that the vast majority of Olympic nations only have a centralised, single NOC, whereas Australia developed a very different decentralised model, which warrants investigation in terms of its historical contribution to the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC). The intent of this study is to serve as a preliminary overview of the history of the VOC which will hopefully pave the way for further scholarly work.
