Welcome to the Student Hub Live! We hope you enjoyed our Olympic Special - watch again on the Catch-up button now.
Student Hub Live returned for an ‘Olympics Special’ two-hour interactive event on Friday 19 August.
Karen Foley was joined by OU academics Caroline Heaney, Simon Rea, Karen Howells, Kath Woodward and Elizabeth Silva to reflect on the fascinating multi-layered narrative of the ‘greatest show on earth’.
Our guests presented five fantastic sessions, with discussions about iconic Olympic moments, the role of sport psychology, and the athlete-coach relationship. There were also sessions about exercise and mental health and gender and sports, and a discussion on the role of the Olympics as a stage for both presenting achievements and voicing grievances nationally and internationally.
We hope you enjoyed the event or if you missed it you can watch it on the Catch-up button now! Please let us know what you think by emailing us, or click on the Feedback button to complete a short online survey.
