The use of sport as a political vehicle

We had a small turnout for Keith's lecture today, but those who did make it, weren't disappointed. As always, and freshly back from his first visit to Shanghai, Keith delivered a fascinating and intensely thought provoking talk, centred around China's bid to host the 2008 Olympic Games.

The Beijing Olympics 2008: A Case Study of the Relationships Between Business, Politics and Sport

His slides are on his blog (linked above), and I'll track down an audio file to go with it.

Thanks Keith.

Tutorials

In the tutorials this week, we mostly spent the time working on our assignments, checking each others work, and fixing any problems as they arose. Some people are advancing really well, which puts them at an advantage in as much as we are more familiar with their work come assessment, and they are getting tips and feedback as they go. This is the benefit of attending the tutorials. You can track people's progress with their assignments here.

Next week

No tutorials or lectures next week. Have a good break
