Olympics Postponed

Spalding headshotAndy Spalding, law professor Andy Spalding and Chair of the Olympics Compliance Task Force, can provide insight on the decision to postpone the Olympic games.

“Having been plagued by corruption and human rights scandals, the Olympic Movement cannot afford a public health scandal. This decision sends a signal that the IOC is increasingly making decisions with the public welfare in mind. The world expected Tokyo to run a better games than Russia or Brazil, and this is a step in the right direction,” said Spalding.

Spalding is an expert on anti-corruption law and mega sporting events, and he is the author of the forthcoming book A Governance Legacy, which focuses on the Olympics.
