The role of government policies in elite sports performance
The increasing involvement of governments in developing elite sports policies line with the high level of academic interest in studying of these major models and frameworks around the world. There is remarkably little critical evaluation to these studies and analysis of elite sport policy linked to the elite sports performance at mega sporting events in particular at the Olympic Games. The comparisons of the role of government policy with the performance of elite sports performance at mega sporting events such as the annual Olympic Games provide wide evidences on sport policy implementation and its application in planning and management literature. It is also an opportunity to bridge the gap between experiment, statistics and descriptive studies which derived the direction and systematizes of the sport research. Following the development of a set of criteria for assessing the adequacy of the role of government policies in elite sports performance. The number of medals in the annual Olympic Games not just the assessing standard, but government policy has reflected on sports performance and society include developing countries via the legacy of involvement in mega sporting events.

This is the background of the proposal study topic. The proposal will be accepted based when literature is very critical evaluate (minimum 200 and maximum 350 words) and pertinent and informs the study and methodology well described and explained (The comparisons of some governments elite sports policies with its national elites historical achievements at Olympic Games). Also, study findings are presented clearly and analysed include implications / pointers for further research are relevant.
