Since Michael Pavitt joined insidethegames.biz in 2015, he has reported on a variety of international multisport events such as the Commonwealth Games, Youth Olympics and World University Games.

He has contributed to several continental events including two editions of the Pan American Games plus the European Games, the Pacific Games and the Asian Winter Games.

Michael has also covered several IOC meetings, ANOC General Assemblies and international Federation Congresses. In the run-up to the Olympic and Paralympic Games, he reported extensively from Tokyo.

Denver was awarded the 1976 Winter Olympics in front of Sion in Switzerland, Tempere in Finland and Vancouver in Canada at the meeting of the International Olympic Committee in 1970. But in a November 1972 referendum in Colorado, voters refused to fund the event. It is the only time that a city has won the Olympics but has withdrawn. The IOC then offered the games to Whistler in Canada, but they also turned them down due to a change of government after the elections. Salt Lake City offered to host the Games, but the IOC, still suffering from Denver’s rejection, declined and chose Innsbruck, the host city of 1964, as its replacement.
