Olympic Review highlights sport’s contribution to society 365 days a year


19 Dec 2022 – The latest edition of Olympic Review, the official publication of the Olympic Movement, published in December 2022, takes a deep dive into the positive role of sport in society, and how the IOC and the Olympic Movement are working to ensure that sport contributes to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals though the Olympism 365 strategy.

This strategy seeks to use the convening power of the IOC and the Olympic Movement to bring together societal actors and create partnerships to ensure that sport and its values are able to fulfil their rightful role as powerful tools for peace and positive social impact.

Olympic Review, Volume 119, describes how this strategy is ensuring that sport can play a key role in sustainable development through a review of different multi-stakeholder projects around the world and third-party contributions from leading voices in the Olympic Movement and other partners.

The contributors to this edition include:

  • Olympian Pau Gasol, a member of the IOC Athletes’ Commission, who reflects on Olympism’s contribution to society and how athletes can give back to their communities
  • Sergio Díaz-Granados, Executive President of CAF-Development Bank of Latin America, who reveals how sport is playing a pivotal role in his organisation’s goal to promote and strengthen gender equality, diversity and inclusion
  • UN Women’s Executive Director, Sima Bahous, who explains how sport is an important driver of gender equality
  • Christian Deuringer, Head of Global Brand & Marketing at Worldwide Olympic Partner Allianz, who describes how his company is using its partnership with the IOC to build a better world through sport
  • IOC Young Leader Tania Lee, who talks about her Inclusive Leadership Programme, iLEAP, which seeks to teach athletes the values of Olympism and how they can use the skills they have acquired in everyday life
  • IOC Women and Sport Award-winner Natsiraishe Maritsa, who explains how she is using taekwondo to empower girls in Zimbabwe.

Meanwhile, the projects described in the magazine include:

  • Sportic, a Latin America-based initiative developed by the IOC and the Inter-American Development Bank using sport and technology to teach young people social and emotional skills to help them navigate society
  • Olympafrica, a programme using sport and the Olympic values to provide young people across Africa with the tools and opportunities to thrive
  • Generation 2024, a Paris 2024 project to encourage youngsters across France to make sport and physical activity a central part of their lives and leave a positive legacy.
