Andrew Jennings, reporter who exposed corruption in international sports, dies at 78



After Mr. Jennings published books about IOC corruption, starting with “Lords of the Rings: Power, Money and Drugs in the Modern Olympics” (1992), co-written with Vyv Simpson, both authors were given suspended five-day jail sentences by a court in Lausanne, Switzerland, for “defaming the IOC.” Mr. Jennings followed up with two other books uncovering corruption in the Olympic body, including “The Great Olympic Swindle” (2000, written with Sambrook).
