The International Sports Press Association, AIPS, was founded in 1924 during the Olympic Games in Paris, at the headquarters of the Sporting Club de France, by Frantz Reichel, the press chief of the Paris Games, and the Belgian Victor Boin. AIPS operates through a system of continental sub-associations and national associations, and liaises closely with some of the world’s biggest sports federations, including the International Olympic Committee, football’s world governing body FIFA, and the IAAF, the international track and field body.

A sportswriter’s life means never sitting with your wife or family at the games. Still working after everyone has gone to the party... Digging beneath a coach’s lies, not to forget those of athletic directors and general managers and owners of pro teams. Keeping a confidence. Risking it.
