Abstract

Legacy research has grown in the last decade, particularly within the field of sport studies, with numerous books and articles examining the physical, social, and environmental legacies of mega-events, including the Olympic Winter Games. As a result, an increasing amount of research on the Olympic movement can fall under the category of Olympic legacy research, despite the boundaries remaining blurry of what exactly Olympic legacy research includes and excludes. The broad themes of bidding, hosting, and reflecting on the Olympic Winter Games appear through the rigorous historical examination of issues impacting a specific winter Olympics, or multiple games hosted by the same nation. New research abounds on the multiple and emerging legacies of the Olympic Winter Games.
