17 Oct – Stefan Holm: Behind the curtains of the Olympics

The most important and prestigious sports championship in the world plays an important role in international politics. The Olympics offers nations a chance to show off their culture, economy and, of course, their sporting prowess. Are the Olympics becoming a tool for authoritarian countries seeking prestige? Can the International Olympic Committee fight the image of corruption that has damaged other international sports organisations, such as FIFA?

Stefan Holm, former Swedish star athlete, member of the International Olympic Committee and the Swedish Olympic Committee, will shed some light on the inner workings of the Olympics.
