2016 Rio Review

Sport Ireland began the process of reviewing the overall Rio Cycle (2013 - 2016) in advance of the commencement of the Olympic Games in August and the Paralympic Games in September. This Review Process was fully completed by December 2016.

The process was robust, with a series of specific stages, significant NGB involvement, and independent oversight. It was designed with the purpose of providing a fair assessment of Ireland’s Olympic and Paralympic campaign; and beyond this, producing independent evidence-based recommendations which will be essential in improving the Irish high performance system as we move forward.
