International Pierre de Coubertin Committee

I have been actively involved with COS&R since its foundation in July 2004, first as a doctoral researcher and then as an International Research Expert. The Centre was founded in order to develop the field of Olympic research. It is one of a network of Olympic research centres. Other major Olympic research centres are based at:

  • Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
  • University Technology Sydney
  • Beijing Sports Unviersity
  • University of Western Ontario
  • German Sport University Cologne

The focus of the Centres is on research relating to Olympism, Olympic Games, the Olympic Movement, and Olympic sport. With the Director of COS&R, Prof. Ian Henry, I have co-authored several research papers as well as the book “Discourses of Olympism. From the Sorbonne 1894 to London”, the title of which also inspired me to create this website.
