For almost 15 years now, has been at the forefront of fearlessly reporting on the events of the Olympic movement. As the first non-paywall website, we’ve made news about the International Olympic Committee, the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Commonwealth Games and other major events more accessible to everyone. has gained a global reputation for the breadth of its reporting and coverage. For many of our readers from over 200 countries and regions around the world, the site is an important part of their daily lives. The ping of our free daily email notification, sent every morning at 6.30am UK time 365 days a year, arriving in their inbox is as familiar a part of their day as their first cup of coffee.

Even during the worst times of the COVID-19 pandemic, maintained a high level of reporting on all news from around the world on a daily basis. We were the first publication in the world to report on the threat posed by the coronavirus to the Olympic Movement, and have since provided unparalleled coverage of the pandemic.

As the world begins to emerge from the COVID crisis, would like to invite you to help us on our journey by funding our independent journalism. Your important support would mean that we can continue to report so comprehensively on the Olympic movement and the events that shape it. That would mean we can keep our website open to everyone. Last year, almost 25 million people read, making us by far the largest independent news source for the world’s sporting events.

Every donation, big or small, will help maintain and improve our global reach in the coming year. Last year, our small and dedicated team was extremely busy reorganizing the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo. This was an unprecedented logistical challenge that stretched tight resources to the limit.

The end of 2022 will not be any less busy or less challenging. We had the Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Beijing, where we sent a team of four journalists, and we have the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, the Summer World University and the Asian Games in China, the World Games in Alabama and several World Championships coming up. In addition, of course, the soccer World Cup will be held in Qatar.

Unlike many others, is accessible to everyone, regardless of what they can afford to pay. We do this because we believe that sports belong to everyone and everyone should be able to read information regardless of their financial situation. Others try to profit from the information financially, but we are committed to sharing it with as many people as possible. The more people can keep up with global events and understand their implications, the more transparent sports must be.
