Abstract

[The promises made by the British Olympic Association’s Bidding Committee to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) about the positive effect the Games would have on the host “community” played a determinant role in winning the 2012 Games. The word “community” was never far from the lips of politicians and of those tasked with defining and delivering the Games. “Community” is a political concept, for the term speaks to narratives of power. It is also a contested term in relation to its definition and connotation.]
