The Participants

  • James Stout
Part of the Mega Event Planning book series (MEGAEP)


This chapter looks in detail at the promised delegations who were in Barcelona or on their way there when the Civil War began. Through press releases, newspaper articles, and other archival documents, it attempts to profile many of the individuals who would have competed at Barcelona and illustrates the journey that took athletes to Barcelona. It also deals with the differences between popular and Workers’ Sport in order to address the misconception that the Popular Olympics were part of the socialist sport movement.
