Sport participation legacies are often offered as reasons to host mega-sport events, yet there is little evidence to demonstrate the claim’s legitimacy, thus the authors examine “What did Whistler Sports do to leverage the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games to facilitate a sport tourism legacy?”. Through a prospective longitudinal case study of Whistler adaptive sport application of the temporal extension of the socioecological framework, multiple data sources were analyzed from over a decade beginning before the event until 2019.
