Issue 10 2014


The IOC Athlete MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) was launched last month with three courses targeted at Olympic athletes, including Can Champions be Made?, Athlete Career Transition, and Smarter Eating for Better Performance. Since the launch, over 800 have already registered!

Can Champions be Made?
Athlete Career Transition
Smarter Eating for Better Performance.

Since the launch, two new courses have been added: Cardiovascular Responses to Exercise and Knowledge is Golden.

Additionally the first live event was held on 30 April, with Entourage Commission member Clive Woodward and former world number 1 tennis player Kim Clijsters. Kim discussed a range of topics including nutrition, her professional career and retirement. The live event ties into the existing Smarter Eating for Better Performance and Athlete Career Transition courses, as well as the newest course on knowledge capture and management.

Next month, keep an eye out for a course on Sport and Technology, and learn an overview of the importance and changing landscape of technology innovation in sport. This course will be led by Professor Jan-Anders Manson, Professor of Material Science at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and President of the International Academy of Sport Science and Technology (AISTS).

Each month we'll offer you the chance to take part in a Live Event, featuring a live video interview with a top athlete, coach or leader from the world of sport. Ask your own questions and hear their thoughts, experiences and expert advice!

As part of our live course 'Knowledge is Golden' we are delighted to announce an interview with former performance director of British Cycling Sir Dave Brailsford. Dave will be chatting to Rugby World Cup winning coach Sir Clive Woodward, reflecting on subjects covered in the live course, including a personal insight as to how he delivered 18 Gold medals and 2 consecutive Tour de France victories.

This exciting Live Event will take place on 18th June 2014, between 5-6pm CET.

This Live Event is open to registered users of the IOC Athlete MOOC. If you have already registered, you will receive a link to the event with instructions on how to join in.
