Other speakers at the games included talk-show host Bill O’Reilly, who addressed the topic of immigration, Olympic skier Bode Miller, his first public appearance since the 2006 Winter Olympics, former Connecticut Governor John Rowland, who will speak about abusing power while in office and Senator George Mitchell of Maine. Mitchell spoke during a program designed to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Institute for International Sport.
This is the fourth time that the non-profit Institute for International Sport, which is based at URI, has administered the World Scholar-Athletes Games since 1993. Daniel E. Doyle, Jr., is the founder and the Executive Director of the Institute for International Sport and the World Scholar-Athlete Games. Each time the event has grown to include more countries and more scholar-athletes.
