Olympic Games Study Commission [Edit]

The Olympic Games Study Commission was formed in 2002 to study all aspects of the Olympic Games, primarily looking at ways to reduce the size, cost, and complexity of organizing the Olympic Games. The commission prepared a report focusing on five areas of the organization of the Olympic Games:

  1. Games Format;
  2. Venues and Facilities;
  3. Games Management;
  4. Number of Accredited Persons; and
  5. Service Levels.

The commission was chaired by International Olympic Committee (IOC) Member Dick Pound (CAN) and presented its report to the 115th IOC Session in Prague. After the report was presented, the commission was dissolved by IOC President Jacques Rogge.
