The Olympics Finally Started

The Olympics is mostly about and for the athletes and that is the main explanation for it finally starting after a one-year postponement and a continued pandemic. But, there is a lot of politics and economics, and the Crossley Center, working with the Japanese Consulate in Denver, presented a program explaining the history and extraordinary backstory of the Olympics movement. View it now.

Nations fight to host an Olympics and Japan’s intent on its delayed event being a success. Hear a presentation from Professor Koji Murata of Kyoto, Japan, and Professor Tim Sisk from the Korbel School discuss what the Olympic Games mean for countries, athletes and the world.

The March 23, 2021 program was supported by the Crossley Center for Public Opinion Research, the Josef Korbel School of International Studies and the Consulate-General of Japan in Denver.
