The Olympic Games became a major sports media event not onlyto the 10,000 athletes from more than 200 countries involved, but also nearly20,000 media representatives to report every day of the competitions, the luckywinners, or the tragic failures. The identification of a country withcompetitive sports and his representatives is meanwhile global. Through thissustained interest in a successful competitive sports between the sports andother social sectors in many developing countries have grown very close andcomplex relationships.

These include a very wide extent, the massive development andexpansion of training of scientific research institutes such as the AIS inCanberra, the JISS in Tokyo, the HIS in Seoul, or the EIS, with its nine institutesin the UK, where complex, sport-specific projects can realized in aninterdisciplinary way. Investment in science have continued in the past Olympiccycle, and often extended. The availability of modern training centers, whichare often closely associated with these research capabilities, are nowbelonging to a standard of basic eligibility requirements. Training control onthe basis of a scientific coaching counseling system for an optimalorganization of competition performance. There is no doubt about the leadingrole of the coach in the development of performance.
