Abstract

The view of the importance of sport in global society has reinforced Brazilian government’s initiatives in the last fourteen years. Because of this, many governmental initiatives have been taken mainly since the election of Brazil for the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, with this the government has increased the public money significantly for their research in sport. Thus, this Symposium proposes to present the “Strategy and legacy of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Rio 2016 for the Country’s development”as well as three structural researches to the development of sport. 1- "Sport Intelligence: The Development of a High Performance Sport Database in BRAZIL" The project is building a comprehensive database of high performance initiatives and athletes, mostly related to sports that are a part of the Olympic and Paralympic programme, and that are currently practiced in Brazil. Of particular interest is the definition of “high performance” for this project, because it includes also the developmental levels of organized competitive sports. Thus, there are three levels to the database: a) interschool sports (middle and high school), which lead to city, state and national championships, and the athletes involved; b) sports competitions organized at local (club), regional and national levels by the National Sport Organizations in Brazil, and the athletes involved; and c) national team athletes involved in international competitions. 2- "A method to establish the current situation of Elite Sport in Brazil" The aim of this study was to develop a method of establishing the current situation of elite sport in Brazil, with a focus on Olympic and Paralympic Sport. The justification for such a study is that sport policy makers in Brazil have no precise information to formulate policy and take decisions about elite sport. The study took as a reference point the SPLISS (Sports Policy factors Leading to International Sporting Success) theoretical framework. For the pillars proposed by SPLISS, specific instruments for data collection and analysis were developed to attend to Brazilian needs and characteristics. 3- "Diagnosis of Brazilian sport" This research investigates the level of sports development in Brazil, and consolidating regular data for the sport, which allow international comparisons. The research has four variables: a) Profile of practicing and not practicing sport and physical activity (the data were consolidated by the international method COMPASS), b) public and private financing of sport, c) federal, state and municipal sports law and d) Mapping of sport facilities in the country.
