Description

The IOC offers the following Video News Release to all news agencies, broadcasters and online news platforms free of charge.

STORY SCRIPT:  

Ninety-two percent of permanent venues used for the Olympic Games in the 21st century and 85 percent of all permanent Olympic venues since 1896 are still in use, a new report 

from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has revealed.

The report – “Over 125 years of Olympic venues: post-Games use” – is the first ever official  inventory of post-Games use of 817 permanent and 106 temporary Olympic venues across 51 Games editions. This spans Olympic Games Athens 1896 through to Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018.

The details, released on the final day of the 139th IOC session held remotely from Lausanne, show the wide-ranging benefits for residents in Olympic host cities and regions. The report has been compiled through data collection and wide stakeholder consultation, including venue owners/operators, legacy entities, city/regional governments and National Olympic Committees, and assured by third party KPMG.
