MY OLYMPIC RESEARCH IN 3 MINUTES
In order to enhance the dissemination and reach of Olympic-related research outcomes within and beyond the Olympic Movement, we have launched a new video series entitled “My Olympic Research in 3 minutes”. A first group of our recent former grant-holders briefly present their research projects to you in a video interview. The first three-minute videos cover the impact of sporting retirement on athletes’ psychological health and well-being, Olympic Games social legacies and different aspects concerning esports players – and can be accessed here. We hope you will find this new initiative interesting. If you have any comments or suggestions to continue improving the series, please write to email@example.com.
