This chapter investigates the corporate governance practices in Organising Committees for Olympic and Paralympic Games with a particular focus on Rio 2016. During 2016, we conducted interviews with directors and managers working for Rio 2016 and its stakeholders. We highlight some footprints in three main areas: internal corporate governance, external corporate governance (stakeholders) and legacy as a corporate governance component. These lessons learnt from the Rio 2016 experience are applicable to other sport organisations, including the Organising Committees for Olympic and Paralympic Games.
