Espionage in the eternal city : the CIA, Ukrainian émigrés, and the 1960 Rome Olympic Games / Austin Duckworth & Thomas M. Hunt

Duckworth, Austin | Hunt, Thomas M

This article examines Central Intelligence Agency activities at international sporting events through a case study on a CIA mission at the 1960 Rome Olympics aimed at Soviet-Ukrainian athletes and tourists. Recently, declassified CIA files provide vivid details regarding the planning and execution of the operation. The CIA sent a group of Ukrainian émigrés, under the leadership of a suspected war criminal named Mykola Lebed, to distribute propaganda and contact Soviet-Ukrainians at the Olympic Games. This thus seeks to build upon previous scholarship on sport and international politics.
