This volume was written out of my teaching experience with the students of Universidade Gama Filho (UGF), in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and of the International Olympic Academy (IOA), in Ancient Olympia, Greece. It is an attempt to meet some of the problems which were part of those experiences from the last 10 years. The book attempts to steer a course between Olympic Legacies and speculative accounts derived from postponements and crises faced by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in recent years when dealing with internal and external confrontations in sport matters.
