Funding: Is an Olympic CEO worth more than a Prime Minister

Description

The new Conservative - Liberal Democrat Government coalition recently announced an emergency budget to fight the financial woes that Britain is currently facing.

the Olympic Games 1908, 1948 and 2012

Olympic legacy-questioning an Olympic legacy for Wales

Description

The legacy impact of the 2012 Games for London – and, by extension, South East England and the country as a whole – has been debated and discussed at length.

Widening participation: the Winter Games and investment in facilities

Description

England has never been known for its majestic mountain ranges, or for its epic year-round snowfall. Nor are the British public known for their expertise in, and enthusiasm for, snow sports such as skiing, slalom, bobsleigh, skeleton or snowboarding. How then, did an English athlete manage to demonstrate a Gold-medal winning performance in the Skeleton event that claimed victory over all of the other great snow sports nations such as Austria, Switzerland, Canada and the US?

Genderisation and sexuality of the female Olympic athelete

Description

Clayton (2002) argue that tennis player Anna Kournikova represents the most powerful symbol of genderisation in sport. Such a supposition is interesting as Kournikova, while successful, never really achieved dominance in her game, instead being better recognised in recent years for her modelling and celebrity profile. The image of Kournikova is, no doubt, a sexualised one

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?
