Hosting the Olympic Games : an overstated advantage in sports history / Stephen Pettigrew, Danyel Reiche

Pettigrew, Stephen | Reiche, Danyel

Previous research on the home advantage in the history of the Olympic Games has found initial evidence that host nations have won more medals than non-hosts. In this paper, the authors argue that these findings are a myth of sports history, providing poor estimates of the home advantage in the Olympics.
