Abstract:

The paper follows on from an earlier study and addresses our understanding of the construction of Olympic legacy. It poses the question what counts as knowledge and who is responsible for producing it and questions the value of rational, objectively-produced knowledge which continues to dominate the sport legacy policy agenda at the expense of other forms of knowledge.
