Organizing Committees of the Olympic Games (OCOG) [Edit]

The organization of each Olympic Games or Olympic Winter Games is entrusted by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to an Organizing Committee, which is then in charge of producing the Olympic Games or Olympic Winter Games. The committees are formed exclusively for the purpose of putting on the Olympics and, as such, dissolve shortly after the Olympics are held. The French acronym is COJO and stands for Comité d’Organisation des Jeux Olympiques.
