Attitudes toward Olympic gigantism : evidence from Germany / Markus Kurscheidt & Nathalie Prüschenk

Kurscheidt, Markus | Prüschenk, Nathalie

The growth and large size of the Olympic Games and the induced extensive costs of hosting the Olympics are controversially discussed under the striking notion of Olympic gigantism, both in the public and scientific debate. However, there is a lack of evidence on the attitudes of the population toward Olympic gigantism which is deemed to be a crucial explanation for failed referendums on Olympic bids in Western democratic countries. This study is the first to measure constructs of Olympic gigantism in a thoroughly clustered online survey of German citizens.
