ABSTRACT
The article profiles Avery Brundage, president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that sponsors the Olympic Games in New York City. In his term, Brundage tried to keep the sports simple, pure and untainted by profit, politics, and other form of professionalism. He looks at every game with mystical fervor to the level of cherished institution above commercial interest. A president of the IOC, he is the man of a worldwide network that feeds athletes into the Olympic presentation.
