(Atlanta) Around the Rings founders Ed and Sheila Hula have been named to Sports Business Journal's list of "Power Players: Olympics".

The list was released on Monday. It was compiled in the wake of the unprecedented decision to postpone the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo until 2021 because of the coronavirus. The list is comprised of 77 top executives, strategists and operators who "are among the most important and influential figures in the Olympics movement", according to Sports Business Journal (SBJ).

"(T)hough many are used to working behind the scenes, they will feel the heat of the spotlight as they navigate uncharted waters with the world's biggest sporting event hanging in the balance," SBJ said.

"It's gratifying to be included with such a well-connected and important group," ATR editor and founder Ed Hula says. "We speak with many of these influencers on a regular basis. They really are the movers and shakers of the Olympic Movement. Modest as I am, it is a recognition of the work and know-how Around the Rings brings to our readers."

ATR joins NBC Sports Group, NBCUniversal and Discovery, Inc. as the only organizations represented in the broadcasting and media category.

The Hulas were two of the 11 individuals selected under the broadcasting and media category. Click here to read the article.

SBJ says Around the Rings "shines a spotlight on the business and political sides of the Olympic movement, and it's a go-to resource for the latest information on the bidding process for future Games".

"It's always nice to be recognized for your work. It's even better when that recognition comes from your peers -- especially one with the stature of Sports Business Journal," says publisher Sheila S. Hula.

Other individuals chosen, led by IOC president Thomas Bach, came from categories including the International Olympic Committee, LA28/U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Properties, U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee, National Governing Bodies, Brands and Sponsors, Agencies and Consultants, and Agents and Athletes.
