The Olympic bidding process as a starting point of the legacy development / M.J. McIntosh

McIntosh, Martha

This paper will focus on using primary information, such as that found in the bid cities documents and the IOC publications, in order to address a series of questions relating to the issue of legacy and the Olympic host city bidding process. These questions include the following: 1) When and why did the concept of leaving behind legacies first appear in the bid process? 2) Precisely how do we see these legacies being defined within the bid process? 3) How does the development of legacies still continue to need to evolve and why must this evolution take place within the bid process? Thus, in seeking answers to the above questions, the findings presented in this paper will serve to demonstrate the two most significant but equally distinct ways in which the bidding process truly serves as the starting point of legacy development. Firstly, through the pre-Games, Games, and post-Games legacies that are identified during the development of the candidate city file and, secondly, through the legacies specifically associated with bidding for the Games.
