Sports have unique characteristics that allow to contribute to development processes. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) endorsed the Olympic Movement Program in the 21 st century, which allows the administration of the Summer Olympic Games in London 2012 and Winter Olympic Games in Sochi 2014 on the basis of sustainable development. Moreover, sports work as a catalyst to economic development, and allow to benefit from it locally. Athletic events can create job opportunities, invest in young talents, which in turn reinforce policies aiming at training instructors and coaches by engaging them in the various developmental programs that constitute an important element in development. Therefore, it is important to recognize sport as a catalyst to development within the goals of a sustainable development plan.
