  • ATR Special Edition for Buenos Aires Now Online!


    (ATR) - Welcome to the latest Around the Rings Special Edition published for Buenos Aires where we will meet the future of the Olympic Movement.

    The Youth Olympic Games is the big story. Unlike any of the preceding two summer editions, Buenos Aires is the proving ground for a new way to present this event. ATR Senior Editor Mark Bisson takes a look at the sports debuting in BA.

    The Olympism in Action Forum will open the doors to talk about new ideas for the Olympic Movement. ATR content editor Gerard Farek reports on what to expect from this high-level exchange.

    The Tokyo Olympics are another emblem of the future for the IOC. Whether for cost management or new sports, Tokyo 2020 is the direction future Games will take. ATR correspondent Aaron Bauer, a regular visitor to Tokyo, reports.

    Buenos Aires is a city with an important link to the 2020 Olympics. Just five years ago, the IOC Session confirmed the Japanese capital as the host at the last session held in BA.

    At this Session in BA, the IOC will welcome its latest class of new members. ATR Editor Ed Hula says that with ages ranging from 24 to 59, the group represents the faces, the personalities of the IOC in the decades to come. As the IOC experiences a wave of retirements, he looks at the impact this will have on the next president of the IOC.
