Olympic turnaround : how the Olympic Games stepped back from the brink of extinction to become the world's best known brand / Michael Payne

Payne, Michael

Edited by Praeger. Westport - 2006

Higher, faster, stronger...The Olympic motto conjures images of heroes whose achievements transcended their athletic prowess, but also of tragedy and disgrace.

Under the leadership of Juan Antonio Samaranch, and, subsequently, Jacques Rogge, the Olympics began a journey back from the brink. Michael Payne, who served as the International Olympic Committee's top marketer for over twenty years, offers unprecedented access to the people and negotiations behind one of the most dramatic turnarounds in business or sports history.
