Von Beginn an hatte es die olympische Bewegung nicht leicht. guy hatte einerseits mit der Zerstrittenheit der europäischen Staaten zu kämpfen und andererseits mit den imperialistischen Ansprüchen der Großmächte weltweit. Direkt und indirekt nahm die Politik damit stets Einfluss auf die Olympiaden. Doch damit nicht genug: Immer wieder in ihrer Geschichte wurden die Olympischen Spiele von Staaten, Organisationen, Gruppierungen und Einzelpersonen dazu benutzt, sich Gehör zu verschaffen und politische Interessen zu vertreten oder durchzusetzen. Die Spiele, bis hin zu den Sportlern, wurden dafür instrumentalisiert. Allzu oft wirkten die Absichten die dahinter standen, dem ursprünglichen Friedensgedanken von Coubertin entgegen.
Aber auch seine instinct ist keineswegs eine rein sportliche. Geht es um die Frage, ob die Olympischen Spiele ein Mittel der Politik sind, ist schon Coubertins Zielsetzung ein eindeutiger Hinweis. Denn Frieden und Völkerverständigung sind Aufgaben der Politik. Der activity kann dabei höchstens Mittel zum Zweck sein, additionally ein Werkzeug der Politik. Die Olympischen Spiele sind im Positiven wie im Negativen Mittel der Politik. Diese Aussage soll in der nun folgenden Arbeit untermauert werden.
