Within the last year, I’ve discovered–and heavily read–the content on what I believe to be the top news source for the Olympic movement worldwide, aroundtherings.com. The drawback is having access to a limited number of articles for free before you have to subscribe, but their content and coverage is outstanding. They cover every aspect of the Olympic movement from the Games themselves to bid cities to doping investigations. They also send multiple reporters and photographers to each Olympics.
The newest article on the website is from Saturday, a one-on-one interview with Britain’s Craig Reedie who was recently elected a vice president of the IOC. He provides a follow up on London 2012, which he was closely involved in, and a preview of what is to come in 2013. The next year is a significant one for the Olympic movement. Current IOC president Jacques Rogge’s term will end and a new president will be elected. February will make one year to go until Sochi 2014. The 2020 Summer Olympics host city will be voted on by the IOC on September 7 in Buenos Aires. Cities interested in bidding for the 2022 Winter Olympics must also submit their complete bids by the end of 2013.
