India's interest in hosting the Olympics UPSC NOTE

 India's interest in hosting the Olympics

  • Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement at the International Olympic Committee (IOC) session in Mumbai that India to do everything possible in its efforts to organise the 2036 edition of Olympics.

  • That India has also expressed an interest in the Youth Olympics as a precursor is a clear signal that it wants to shed the reticence that came with the unsavoury happenings at the scam-ridden and ineptly handled 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games. 

  • Though the ratification of the host city for 2036 will take time.

  • Brisbane was selected for the 2032 edition only in July 2021.

Potential benefits for India

  • The move lays bare India’s global ambitions. 

  • Be it through the desire for a permanent membership at the United Nations Security Council or the euphoria surrounding the G-20 presidency, India has consistently sought a seat at the high table. 

  • The tag of an Olympic host can give it a vantage position in a shifting world order.

  • Sporting-wise, India wants to benefit from the strong tailwind produced by the stellar 107-medal show at the recently concluded Asian Games. 

  • There is even a firm belief that India will win double-digit medals at Paris 2024. 

Challenges for India

  • Conducting a mega event such as the Olympics presents a humongous challenge. 

  • Costs are often prohibitive, as seen from the fierce public outcry during both Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020. 

  • In the case of Tokyo, the financial burden was said to have ballooned to $15.4 billion, more than double the initial estimate. 

  • India’s success will depend on how it marries its aspirations with the inherent complexities.
