    Descriptive info: \ Special Programs.. The Use of Sport Art for the Development of Olympic Education.. Passing the Torch.. By:.. Thomas P.. Rosandich, President and CEO of the United States Sports Academy.. Presented to:.. International Olympic Academy, Olympia, Greece, on 12 May 2010.. "The Olympic Games are not just ordinary world championships but a four-yearly festival of universal youth, 'the spring of mankind,'.. multiple ambitions in all forms…To the ancient Greeks, the Olympics were as much a matter of art as athleticism.. ".. Baron Pierre de Coubertin, Founder of the Modern Olympic Games.. Since the beginning of the Olympic Games, sport and art have been partners in communicating Olympic values, and this powerful educational partnership continues today.. Defined in the 1800s by its founder, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the purpose of the Modern Olympics is to promote the physical, psychological, and peaceful cultural improvement of man and nations through sport.. More effectively than any other vehicle, sport art brings the spirit of the Games to the masses in line with the democratic principles of Olympism.. Only a few select athletes can experience the thrill of participating in Olympic sports.. However, everyone can enjoy and be inspired by viewing Olympic art.. The Olympic Movement is the greatest sport and social movement in human history.. The Modern Olympic Games revived the Ancient Olympic Games.. The Games have survived world wars.. They have survived economic collapse.. Time and again, the Olympic Movement perseveres in the face of adversity.. Looking ahead to challenges facing National Olympic Committees, art emerges as a powerful tool for the success and education of future generations in Olympism.. The recent IOC publication of the book Olympic Posters is a great resource for teaching Olympism.. Posters offer a quick history lesson because dates, places, art styles, and often sports stars are clearly shown.. Olympic Games promotion is focused on the youth market, and posters are an effective tool because they are within most young people’s budgets and are popular displays in young people’s rooms.. It might seem unlikely that a simple paper item like a poster would be significant in a fast-paced technological age, however, it is because posters are not fleeting that they retain their teaching edge.. You cannot turn them off, and their batteries do not run out.. A poster on your wall is a message that keeps on educating.. If a picture is worth a thousand words, an appealing Olympic poster’s symbolic message in the person of an exciting athlete is worth a thousand lectures about building character.. The posters chosen for discussion here have been selected for their ability to communicate specific milestones in Olympic history or shifts in world culture, and these qualities make them particularly useful as educational tools.. The first official Olympic poster was not printed until 1912.. Program covers from prior Games were later printed as posters and contain valuable educational information on early Olympic practices.. The Official Report cover for the first Olympics of the modern era, the 1896 Athens Games, is a symbolic portrayal of the connection of Ancient Games to Modern.. A manifestation of Coubertin’s vision, the Modern Olympic Games were a vehicle for peace and democracy and strictly amateur.. Thirteen nations participated in the first games.. The athletes were mostly affluent American and Greek college students.. During these Games, Spiridon Louis, a Greek postal worker, won the first Olympic marathon in 2 hours, 38 minutes, and 50 seconds.. The image now printed as the official poster for the 1900 Paris Games is a poster originally designed for the Paris World Exhibition.. Even though 22 nations participated in those Games, because of the concurrent schedule, some athletes at the time were unaware that they were competing in the Olympics.. Swimming events took place in the Seine River.. The poster featuring a woman fencer is fitting, as it advertises the first Games in which women athletes were allowed.. An American golfer was the first woman to win an Olympic event.. The 1904 Olympics became another Games upstaged, this time by the St.. Louis World Fair.. U.. President Theodore Roosevelt changed the host city from Chicago to St.. Louis to ensure that the Games would be held along with the Louisiana Purchase Exhibition.. Noting the event’s famously festive mood, one reporter dubbed the event “a fair where there are also sports.. ” Because many people still thought of St.. Louis as the dangerous “Wild West,” attendance from those outside the United States was minimal.. Of the 554 athletes, 432 were Americans.. At the St.. Louis Games, basketball was held as a demonstration sport, while men’s golf was an official event.. The 1908 Games were held in London.. Rome had been scheduled to host the fourth Olympic Games, but a volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius changed the site to London.. Rome would not host the Games until 1960.. In 1908, the London Games were attended by 23 nations and 2,000 athletes and were the first Olympics in which the top three finishers earned medals.. Several other firsts occurred here.. The Olympic motto was coined: It’s the participation that counts, not the winning.. Figure skating became an Olympic sport.. The first medals were awarded for works of art inspired by sport in the fields of architecture, literature, music, painting, and sculpture.. Depicted on the program cover, Shepherd’s Bush stadium played a part in another first.. The official 26-mile, 385-yard marathon length was adopted so that athletes starting at the stadium would finish for easy royal viewing in front of the Royal Box.. The 1912 Stockholm Games produced the first planned and executed official Olympic poster.. The main job of early posters was to announce and advertise the Games.. The 1912 poster was printed in 16 nations and shipped to 30 different countries for display.. The partial nudity of the athlete portrayed, a nod to Ancient Olympic Games, caused international controversy.. The flag sequence, representing the march of the nations, was also an issue of dispute.. Over 3,800 athletes from 28 nations participated in those Games, including the first entry by Japan.. For the first time, competitors came from all five parts of the world later symbolized in the five Olympic Rings first shown at the 1920 Games.. When Sweden refused to hold boxing events because the violence of the sport infringed on their neutrality philosophy, the IOC issued a rule to limit the powers of local organizing committees and took control of event selections.. The 1912 Games also saw breakthroughs in technology and sport, including the public address system and stop watches.. The 1920 Antwerp Games were the first Olympics after World War I.. Athletes from Germany, Austria, Bulgaria, and Turkey were excluded.. At those Games, the Olympic Oath, a solemn promise made by one athlete who represents all competitors, was reinstated from the Ancient Games.. The Olympic Flag was adopted with its five-colored interlocking rings that symbolize fraternity among nations and the five participating continents.. At those Games, hockey was first included, paving the way for future Winter Olympics.. For the Antwerp Games, the IOC began to invite countries rather than individual athletes.. Those Games were the largest to date in terms of participating countries.. Paris, home of Olympic founder Baron Pierre de Coubertin, hosted its second Games in 1924.. This was Coubertin’s last Olympics as President of the IOC.. A new Olympic motto, Citius, Altius, Fortius (Faster, Higher, Stronger) was used for the first time.. In 1928 in Amsterdam, Holland’s Prince Hendrik opened the largest Games to date in a newly-built, 40,000-spectator stadium that established a tradition of a 400-meter running track.. Prince Hendrik introduced a giant results board, now standard for all international competitions.. The Dutch also introduced the Olympic Flame, which now burns throughout each Olympiad.. Women were allowed to compete in track and field events for the first time.. For the first time since World War I, Germany was allowed back in the Games.. The 1928 poster, the rarest of all Olympic posters, sells for approximately 18,000 U.. Dollars, and is the first to feature the Olympic Rings that have appeared on all following official posters.. The streamlined Deco design of the poster marked the shift from ancient to modern styles and reflects a machine age obsession with speed.. This poster does not display specific dates for the Games.. Posters no longer needed to provide schedules for an isolated public.. Telegraph, radio, and then television could relay the news much faster than print.. The 1936 Games, known as “Hitler’s Games,” originally were to be hosted by Barcelona, but the IOC changed this because Spain was on the brink of civil war.. In newly selected Berlin, Adolf Hitler opened the Games in a highly politicized atmosphere, a trend that would continue throughout the 20th century.. At the 1912 Stockholm Games, Baron Pierre de Coubertin had said, “great people have received the Torch… and have thereby undertaken to preserve and… quicken its precious Flame.. ” The flame symbol was reconfigured as a Torch Relay at the 1936 Berlin Games.. The relay has preceded all Olympic Summer Games since.. The 1936 opening ceremonies featured a release of  ...   stylized running track in the shape of a building topped by a red star, continued the trend toward simple, stylized design images.. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan opened the Los Angeles Games to a record 141 nations and more than 7,000 athletes.. The Games were boycotted by The Soviet Union and 16 other countries.. The two Irelands competed as one; the two Koreas considered doing the same; and the People’s Republic of China entered the Games for the first time.. The winning bid for the Games did not come from a national, state, or local government.. It was put together by a free enterprise system headed by Peter Ueberroth, a Los Angeles travel agent whose business savvy may have single-handedly reversed the backward economic progress of the Modern Olympic Games.. Such a process had not been undertaken since 1896.. Carl Lewis (USA) won the 100 merters, 200 meters, long jump, and 400 meter relay.. Joan Benoit (USA) became the winner of the 1st women’s marathon.. The 1984 poster’s five stars symbolizing high goals are cut from photographs of cultural U.. images and are repeated to indicate multiple competitors and speed.. The year 1988 marked the first Paralympic Games to take place at the same venue as the Olympics.. The Seoul Olympic facilities were built from scratch, and every competition site boasted an exceptional cleanliness.. Nineteen world and seven Olympic records were broken.. Despite the success, Seoul will always be remembered as “The Doping Olympics.. ” Three winners in weight lifting and a Canadian sprinter, Ben Johnson, were stripped of gold medals for testing positive for steroids.. In those Games, tennis returned as an event, this time featuring the world’s professional tennis players.. Florence Griffith-Joyner (USA) broke the world record in the 200 meters with a time of 21.. 34 and also won the 100 meters and 4x100 relay.. The groundbreaking 1988 poster signifies the dawning of the computer age, now a major factor in the development of Olympic education.. This poster image expresses harmony between tradition and technological advancement.. Barcelona put on a gold medal show in 1992 by recapturing the splendor of the historic maritime city.. They removed urban factories to build an Olympic Village with parks and shops, and minimized pollution in the Mediterranean Sea.. A record 172 nations participated in the first Games since 1972 without a boycott.. Soviet Republics entered the Games as the Unified Team and dominated competitions with 112 medals.. South Africa was welcomed back after the 1991 moratorium on apartheid.. Jackie Joyner-Kersee (USA) won her second straight heptathlon and Javier Sotomayor (Cuba) cleared eight feet in the high jump.. Sotomayor’s record still stands.. The poster image heralds the future of technology in Games media with its brand-like logo.. Today the key means of communicating facts about the Games are television and online news.. In 1996, Atlanta hosted the Centennial Olympics.. As in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympiad, the Games was won by a bid entered by enterprising businessmen, this time led by Billy Payne.. A record 197 nations committed to participate, including North Korea in its first entry.. There were 10,788 athletes who vied for gold metals.. The entire face of Atlanta was changed by the construction of such venues as the Centennial Olympic Stadium and the Olympic Park.. The Olympic Village ultimately became residential housing for Georgia State University and Georgia Tech University.. The Centennial Olympic Stadium for track and field events was converted into Turner Field baseball stadium for the Atlanta Braves.. Centennial Olympic Park is still in use.. The Games cost US$1.. 8 billion to stage, US$500 million of which was American taxpayer dollars.. The poster of a Greek profile in modern Matisse cut-out style was created by designer, Primo Angeli, who also became responsible for the design of the 2012 London logo.. The 2000 Sydney Games marked the second time the Summer Games were held in the Southern Hemisphere, the first being Melbourne in 1956.. In those Games, Greco-Roman wrestler, Rulon Gardner (USA), defeated Alexandre Karelin (Russia), who had won golds in Seoul, Barcelona, and Atlanta.. Before his match with Gardner, Karelin was undefeated for 13 years.. The Australian poster shows a shadowy Sydney Opera House topped by leaping Aboriginal symbols indicative of heightened worldwide respect for first nation cultures.. The 2004 Athens Games, the “Internet Olympics,” marked the first time that major broadcasters were allowed to serve video coverage over the worldwide web.. IOC President Dr.. Jacques Rogge described these Games as the “unforgettable, dream Games.. ” The motto was, Welcome Home, reflecting the first time since 1896 that the Olympics were held in Greece.. Those Games saw an unprecedented focus on security.. Seventy thousand police officers were on hand, costing organizers an estimated US$1.. 2 billion.. A simple olive branch in blue and white on the poster symbolizes the Greek countryside and the country’s historic involvement with the Games.. The olive branch is a symbol of Athens and was the traditional award to Olympic champions during the Ancient Olympic Games.. Also useful for Olympic education, the Winter Olympic posters are in many ways just as, if not more visually breathtaking than those of the Summer Games.. In 1948, the Winter Games returned to St.. Mroitz, the site of the 1928 Winter Games, the first true Winter Games, which replaced the Nordic Games.. The 1948 poster shows tanned skiers and a bright, large Alpine sun.. The image emphasizes nature’s dominance over man.. The 1984 Winter Games in Sarajevo were branded the “Friendly Games,” and did not hint at the fighting that would tear Yugoslavia apart eight years later.. The 1994 Lillehammer Games in Norway marked the first and only time to date that the Olympic Games were staged two years apart, as the IOC chose to move the Winter and Summer Games to separate four year schedules.. Hometown star speed skater, Johann Olav Koss, won the 1,500, 5,000 and 10,000 setting world records in all of them.. His extraordinary gift of all his winnings to Olympic Aid inspired a flood of $18 million in donations over 10 days.. Though the Bosnian War raged as the Games took place, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s four-man bobsled team consisted of one Croatian, two Bosnians, and a Serbian—another example of the Olympic code’s contributions to peace.. As the Games evolve, so does the poster art used to promote them.. The 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics poster, with its fresh, vibrant colors and contemporary design, is an example of how Olympic posters are an opportunity for the host culture to influence young people of the world.. The Sochi 2014 logo is an even better example.. The Sochi logo takes this computerization one step further by being the first logo to feature a Games’ website (Sochi.. ru).. It aims to advertise the Games and to entice the people of the world to look further for information, thus leading people to a vast online directory of Olympic history and philosophy.. In the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games, 11,028 athletes from 204 nations competed.. The Games were a source of national pride for the Chinese, and offered hope for long-term reforms in environmental policy.. Those Games cost an estimated US$15 billion to stage, but produced revenues in excess of US$16 billion.. In Beijing, swimmer Michael Phelps (USA) won 8 gold medals, and Usain Bolt (Jamaica) set world records in the 100 and 200 meter sprints.. The official poster for Beijing was designed cooperatively by students from about 266 colleges and universities in China.. The upcoming 2012 Games in London have yet to reveal an official poster; but the logo, designed by the designer of the 1996 official poster, Primo Angeli, continues in the modern tradition of streamlined corporate design.. In the logo, the five boroughs of London are stylized to form the numbers 2012.. Today, the Olympic Movement faces a new challenge: finding relevance in a fast paced, digital age.. IOC president Jacques Rogge said that “If we don’t adapt to the changes of our youth, we are lost.. We are a movement of young people.. ” Thus, Rogge proposed a Youth Olympic Games in 2001.. The first event is scheduled to take place in August 2010 in Singapore.. The poster for the Youth Olympic Games prominently displays the Games’ website.. The power to represent the identity and principles of an event is imparted intentionally by the artists in their choice of symbolic images as well as coincidentally by events when historic milestones happen at specific Games.. The three pillars of the Olympic Movement are sport, culture, and the environment.. Olympic art educates the viewer in Olympic values by telling the story of its times in artistic shorthand and continuing to echo the concepts shaping the event in the public’s collective mind ever after..
