Does anyone have any idea where the 2008 olympics will be?

The modern olympics were founded by Baron Pierre de Coubertin of France in 1896. They were a quadrennial event until the 90's when the summer and winter games were split. So each olympiad is still every four years, the two jsut aren't in the same year. Los Angeles '84 was the first profitable games using existing stadia and sponsorships that were considered revolutionary at the time. Peter Ueberoff was in charge for the US and he is still a force in the American sports industry. The games made so much money that the Amateur Athletic Foundation was created in LA as a legacy and to distribute the funds to youth sports in LA. I used to study at USC and was a Sports Info minor-they have a library there that is a great resource. (If you live in LA it's on Adams Blvd and open to the public.) If not, then go to their website, they have a lot of resources and a complete history of the modern olympic games.

Seriously, this link http://www.aafla.org/6oic/primer_frmst.h... will take you to a synopisis page of the olympics - it should be a great help to you-good luck!

In terms of validity or reliability what are the criticisms of the NCF multistage fitness test?

Certainly. Ancient Olympics were first recorded in 776 BC (although they started a long time before that) and got shut down by the Romans in the 4th century AD. The Modern Olympics was revived in 1896 when Athens held the first modern Games. As for the Olympics today, try looking at the IOC website
