Description

We all know that the heart is very important but what exactly does the heart do? Why is the blood so important? What functions do the lungs perform? In this free course, Exploring sport online: Athletes and efficient hearts, we will try to provide at least a basic understanding so we can answer these questions and begin to understand why knowing about the heart is important for all sports people. Before that we will take a look at the human body. First published on Fri, 18 Mar 2016 as Exploring sport online: Athletes and efficient hearts.

The psychological aspects of sports injury The psychological aspects of sports injury

Description

For many people sport is a way of life, so imagine the emotional distress that a sports injury can bring when it restricts someone's participation in sport. This free course, The psychological aspects of sports injury, examines the role of psychological factors in sports injury. You will look at both the psychological factors that can lead to a sports injury and the psychological reactions that a sports person can experience when injured. This course is for you if you have ever experienced a sports injury, if you work with injured athletes or if you have a general interest in the area.

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

The use of sports science in preparation for Olympic competition

Description

The Olympic Games represents the pinnacle of most athletes' careers and as the memories of Beijing 2008 fade, the focus now is very clearly on Vancouver 2010 and London 2012 and the preparation programmes that will lead to optimal performance. Over the last 25 years, there has been a significant growth in the importance of sports science in assisting, improving, and monitoring athlete preparation for the Olympic Games. Most individual athletes and teams will have several sport scientists who are integral to both the preparation phase and at the Olympic Games themselves. In this special issue, we have brought together a number of review papers from several disciplines with a coherent focus on optimizing preparation for Olympic competition. More specifically, the papers in this issue cover
