These problems are attributable to the fact that ethical governance has not kept pace with the rapid expansion of the Olympic Movement (OM). The Olympics are big bus. for sponsors, host cities, athletes, & the org. that make up the OM. The report explains how the culture of gift-giving was made possible by the closed nature of the IOC & by the absence of ethical & transparent financial controls. Proposes governance changes to restore & protect the integrity of the OM.Mitchell, George J. is the author of 'Report of the Special Bid Oversight Commission U.S. Olympic Committee' with ISBN 9780756708511 and ISBN 0756708516.
