www.olympic.orgOLYMPIC REVIEW7PRESIDENT ROGGE FOREWORDPeople unfamiliar with the OlympicMovement sometimes think that the yearsbetween the Olympic Winter Games andthe Games of the Olympiad are a quiet time for theOlympic Family. The reality is far different. Our Movement is always working toward thefuture, and that is certainly true in 2011. We are now less than a year away from the firstWinter Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck. In just a few months, we will start the final countdown to the2012 Olympic Games in London. As preparations for those Games enter the final phase, organisers inother parts of the world are hard at work on futureOlympic events.In fact, by the end of the year, the InternationalOlympic Committee will be overseeing preparationsfor four editions of the Olympic Games and threeeditions of the Youth Olympic Games. In May, the IOC will receive a technicalpresentation from the three candidate cities for the2018 Olympic Winter Games - Munich, Germany;Annecy, France; and Pyeongchang, Republic of Korea.The meeting in Lausanne will give IOC members a chance to compare the pros and cons of each bid,and to question representatives from all three cities.The final decision on the host of the 2018Olympic Winter Games will be taken at the IOCSession in Durban in early July. Of course, looking to the future does not justmean planning big events. It also means anticipatingproblems before they occur and finding new ways to keep our Movement relevant.Dealing with the potential threat from illegal andirregular betting is a top priority in 2011. Althoughillegal betting has not been a problem at the OlympicGames thus far, it would be naïve to think that itcannot happen. In fact, it is probably safe to say thatit will happen if we do not take steps to prevent it.International Federations should establish ruleswith firm sanctions against offenders as soon aspossible. We will also need the support ofgovernments, intergovernmental organisations andpolice authorities. The world of sport cannot deal with this problem alone.By working together and taking steps now, we can significantly reduce the threat from illegal betting. Promoting Olympic values is another way toprotect the integrity sport. The Youth Olympic Gamesare an effective new tool in that effort. By combiningsport, education and culture, the Youth OlympicGames bring Olympic values to life for young peoplearound the world.There are many ways to fulfill our mission ofplacing sport at the service of humanity. The OlympicGames are, and will always be, our premier event. The time between Games is not a time for rest. It's a time to work toward the future. ?FOREWORDBY JACQUESROGGEPRESIDENT, INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE
