Oman is located in southwest Asia on the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It is an IOC member since 1982 and participates in the Olympic Games since 1984. However, despite the fact that Oman is an active member of the Olympic Movement there is no Olympic Academy in the country to promote Olympism. The main aim of this study is to investigate the hindrances and the enablers existing in the process of establishing the Oman Olympic Academy. The methodology that employed is qualitative (interviews with sports specialists from different categories who have experience in sport and Olympics in the country for many years).
