Formatted abstract
The biggest physical legacy of the Olympics Games to the host city is Olympics-related facilities. Most post-Olympics researches focus on the operation and management of these facilities, while post-Olympics urban planning and development is not fully investigated – the purpose of this article is to contribute to this aspect of study. We use Sydney Olympic Park as a case study to analyse how the NSW government has applied neoliberal governance to its planning and development since the 2000 Olympics Games. Our conclusion is: huge government investment in Olympics-related facilities is against pure neoliberalism. However, the neoliberal policies of small government, public private partnership and capitalization of government-owned land can help maximize the value of the Olympics legacy. We hope this article adds to the current discussion of similar kind in major Chinese cities.
