OLYMPIC VALUES: Keeping the amateurs amateur

Description

Given the financial clout of professional sport, it is little wonder that many athletes are tempted to turn professional after amateur wins. Boxing is perhaps the clearest example of a sport where athletes are faced with the fundamental amateur v pro debate: do they retain amateur status to live the dream of competing on home soil as Olympic boxers in the London 20102 Games, or take the tempting financial route of lucrative professional contracts and World Championship titles, with the downside of potentially entering the ring too fast than their experience and youth might ideally allow?

Epictetus, Plato and the Olympics

Description

Aristotle was a big fan of the Ancient Games, describing a young man's ultimate physical beauty as: "a body capable of enduring all efforts, either of the racecourse or of bodily strength...This is why the athletes in the pentathlon are most beautiful." (Aristotle, Rhetoric1361b)

Sport always courts controversy

Description

Undoubtedly, the role of an athlete at any major sports competition – including the Olympic and Paralympic Games – is to do their very best to excel within their sport, to beat their personal best, set world records, triumph over their adversaries and ultimately win a place on the winners’ Podium. However, some people argue that athletes are also role models and that they have a social responsibility too. We consider examples from the recent Vancouver 2010 Games that illustrate how perceived negative behaviours by athletes caused a flurry of press coverage and negative reporting. Clearly, the focus of the world is not only on sport, but on all of the actions of Olympic and Paralympic athletes

Can Olympic sport learn from bodybuilding?

Description

Drugs are a problem in many sports, including a number of Olympic sports, and Bodybuilding provides an interesting example of a sport which has tried to tackle the problem of drugs through offering two categories of participation. The 'Natural' and the 'Assisted' versions of the sport offer the opportunity to distinguish between those who want to stay' clean' and those who don't. Two case studies illustrate how this approach works through the experiences and insights of the current British Champion and a former World Champion

Gender, Interculturalism and Discourses on Women's Leadership in the Olympic Movement

Description

This paper addresses Western discourses relating to the role of women in the leadership of Olympic and elite sporting bodies in two contrasting non-western contexts, namely in selected Muslim countries (i.e. Member States of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference) and in the People's Republic of China. The two cases are selected because they reflect contrasting contexts in which the role of women is seen to be embedded in very different ideologies, often referred to simplistically as a religious, and a political ideology respectively. The data through which we scrutinise these two cases are derived from two separate studies. The first is an evaluation study of IOC policy Women in Leadership in the Olympic Movement. In 1996 the IOC adopted a set of minimum targets in relation to the pr

Sports nutrition and 2012 legacy goals

Description

A healthier nation is another part of the social legacy goals of the 2012 Games ,although the appointment of Cadburys and McDonald's as official sponsors almost seems to contradict that goal, particularly when athletes are now so conscious of the basic principles of sports nutrition. This case study poses questions about this contradiction

The controversy of Dow sponsorship

Description

An issue at the 2012 Games is LOCOG's controversial decision accept sponsorship from Dow Chemicals, and to appoint them to the TOP Partner Programme. Dow Chemicals took over the company (in 1999) which had owned the Union Carbide Chemical Plant in Bhopal in India, which was responsible for a chemical leak which killed up to 25,000 people in 1984. Although Dow deny any responsibility at the time, it is argued that they took over the liabilities of Union Carbide and a settlement of £288 million which is regarded by the Indian Government as insufficient. This case study examines another example of a dubious sponsonship agreement by the Olympic Movement

Getting the nation moving: the festival effect

Description

The Olympic and Paralympic Games can be used to encourage people to think about becoming more active. 1. Can the Olympic Games encourage physical activity among those who don't like sport? 2. how can the Games be promoted as being 'beyond sport' when they are an elite sport competition? 3. Does an emphasis on exercise and trying to persuade people to get healthy put some people off participating?
