The latest editions of the GSI Nations Index, GSI Cities Index and GSI Events Index are due to be revealed next week at SportAccord 2018, with several key questions to be answered.
WHERE: SAC Café | Speakers' Corner | SportAccord 2018 | Bangkok
WHEN: 13:45 (local time) | Tuesday 17th April
The GSI Nations & Cities Indices feature 587 cities from 88 nations, with 683 events across 155 categories in 81 sports analysed, including both summer and winter Olympic sports, and Olympic ‘recognised’ sports.
CAN THE USA HOLD ON TO TOP SPOT IN THE GSI NATIONS INDEX?……despite scoring fewer points than in 2017? or will any of the remaining nations in last year’s Top 5 – United Kingdom, Russia, China or Canada– push their way to the top?
WE'VE SEEN SIGNIFICANT MOVEMENT IN THE GSI CITIES INDEX….with four cities in the top 5 changing places, will London be denied being crowned Global Sports City for a 7th consecutive year? And with only four cities in the top 20 not moving, who will be the biggest climber?
A TOTAL OF 80 EVENTS CONSIDERED FOR SPORTCAL'S GSI EVENT OF 2017……with the Top 5 events separated by a mere 230 points, who will earn the crown of the GSI Event of 2017, in a year when none of the traditional biggest sporting events were held?
RESULTS TO BE ANNOUNCED @ 13:45 (LOCAL TIME) ON TUESDAY 17TH IN THE SAC CAFE, AT SPEAKERS' CORNER, SPORTACCORD 2018
