46OLYMPIC REVIEW include collection and analysis of data for 126 indicators, and preparation of three reports: pre- Games, Games- time and post- Games ( the baseline report was completed in 2007 by the Fraser Basin Council). The Pre- Games OGI report has been completed and is scheduled to be released in late November 2009, when it will be available on request through the VANOC website. In broad terms, OGI is a sustainability indicators-based study that measures the environmental, economic, and socio- cultural impacts of the Games. Impacts are the changes, or outcomes, in the host city/ region/ country that result from holding the Games. Each of the 126 indicators has a subset of variables that describe the properties of the indicator and specify the types of data to be collected and analysed. The time frame for an OGI study is 12 years, beginning ? OLYMPIC RESEARCH CORNER IMPACT OF THEGAMES THE OLYMPIC GAMES IMPACT ( OGI) STUDY BEING CONDUCTED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA ( UBC) FOR VANCOUVER 2010 IS LOOKING INTO THE ENVIRONMENTAL, ECONOMIC AND SOCIO- CULTURAL AFFECTS ON A CITY HOSTING THE OLYMPIC GAMES T he International Olympic Committee ( IOC) initiated OGI in 2003 with three main objectives: to assess the overall impact of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, to assist bid cities and future Games organisers in maximising the benefits of the Games, and to create a comparable benchmark across all future Games. Sustainability is a core principle of OGI. The Games are intended to be sustainable in the sense that they should be " economically viable, be integrated into, and ideally enhance, the local socio- cultural conditions, and... respect the environment." UBC was awarded the five- year OGI project grant in June 2008 by the Vancouver Organising Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games ( VANOC) to conduct the OGI study.
