Abstract: Competitive sports events include not only Olympic events, but also non-Olympic events. On world ven-ues, high level non-Olympic events are highly expected by people as well. Affected by the “Olympic Glory Pro-gram”, in China non-Olympic events are not highly regarded, some non-Olympic events in which splendid per-formances had once been achieved have lost their shine, and the development of some non-Olympic events wel-comed by the mass are significantly restricted, which has affected the pace of China to develop into a sport powerful nation. The authors pointed out that related state departments should adjust strategic deployment according to actual circumstances and situations, strengthen the training for non-Olympic vents, boost the overall development with lo-cal developments, reform the methods for the calculation of game performances and ratings, and increase policy support and capital investment, so as to boost the healthy development of non-Olympic events.
