International Diplomacy and the role of the USOC

A hidden jewel in the Colorado Springs community, the United States Olympic Committee is  responsible for far more than preparing U.S. athletes to compete in the Olympics. It also plays a leading role in promoting sport as an effective form of diplomacy (remember ‘ping pong’ diplomacy?) and in advancing sport as an essential form of worldwide community development.


At the March World Affairs Council, you will learn about the USOC’s role in diplomacy from the man who conceives and implements it- Dragomir Cioroslan, the Director or International Strategies & Development, United States Olympic Committee.


Cioroslan has been Director of International Strategies and Development for the USOC since 2006. A three-time Olympic weightlifter from his native Romania, he won a bronze medal in the 1984 Games in Los Angeles, among five other World and European championship medals, and has been a major voice in the Olympic movement for more than 30 years. In his current position, he is responsible for U.S. international leadership development and the full range of international relations for the Olympics National Governing Body. He works closely with other national Olympic Committees in promoting programming and building organizational capacity to support athletes, coaches, and officials around the world.
