Dick Pound, the most-senior member of the International Olympic Committee, is in Vancouver to speak to the Canadian Club on April 1.
On March 28, theBreaker.news Podcast host Bob Mackin sat down with the outspoken Montreal lawyer and author, who negotiated broadcast and sponsorship agreements that led to massive growth in world sport.
In part I, Mackin asks the 77-year-old Pound about Calgary’s failed 2026 Winter Olympics bid, China’s human rights record as the Beijing 2022 Winter Games approach and whether there should be a body like the World Anti-Doping Agency (which he founded) to protect athletes from abuse and to protect sport from corruption.
