Understanding Olympic tourism flows

Description

The Olympic and Paralympic Games provide few direct tourism benefits outside the host city. 1- How valuable and useful are pre-Games predictions of Olympic tourism impacts that might take place? 2- Does it matter that the host city gets tourism benefits, but the rest of the host country often loses out? 3- How can Games hosts be persuaded to measure and account for negative and neutral tourism impacts?

Paralympic narratives- perceptions of disability

Description

The Paralympic Games have the potential to change popular perceptions of disability. 1- Is the specific legacy potential of the Paralympic Games taken seriously by politicians and Games organisers? 2- Could stories about the Paralympic Games and disabled athletes have a negative impact on disabled people? 3- Is it asking too much of the Paralympic Games to change people’s attitudes towards disability?

A UK-wide legacy? Leveraging the Olympic and paralympic values

Description

The Olympic and Paralympic values can be used to help develop a UK-wide legacy. 1- Are the 2012 Games just about legacies in London, or can the rest of the country also benefit from the Games? 2- Why do politicians prefer to talk about UK-wide economic legacies rather than social and cultural legacies? 3- How valuable and important are social, cultural and health legacies in comparison to economic legacies?

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

TOP, created in 1985, was established to maximise opportunities for generation of sponsorship revenue for the IOC, whilst at the same time reducing the substantial number of major corporate sponsors that had previously been involved with the Games to approximately seventy participating organisations.

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

Does an emphasis on exercise and trying to persuade people to get healthy put some people off participating?
