”The Olympics is a Disaster for People who Live in Host Cities” - Drs Mac Ross & Michael McDougall (Pt2) - Meaningful Sport Series

”The Olympics is a Disaster for People who Live in Host Cities” - Drs Mac Ross & Michael McDougall (Pt2) - Meaningful Sport Series

October 22, 2021

Why should people lose their homes for a hockey game to happen? The Olympic Games has been celebrated as a way of bringing people together and providing inspiration for the spectators. However, it is rarely mentioned that in many host cities, hundreds if not thousands of people have been displaced from their homes for the Games to take place. As our guests have argued in their article in Washington Post, "The Olympics is a disaster for people who live in host cities". This episode examines this statement and whether there is hope for a better future.

In this second part of our conversation with Drs Mac Ross and Michael McDougall, we examine the serious human rights issues that have accompanied the hosting of the Olympic Games.

Dr Michael McDougall is an Assistant professor of psychology at Keystone College, specializing in culture, sport and organizations,

Dr Mac Ross is an Assistant professor of kinesiology at Western University in London, Ontario, where he teaches history, sociology and management of sport.

The Olympics, Human Rights, and Management of Meaning in Sport - Drs Mac Ross & Michael McDougall - Meaningful Sport Series

The Olympics, Human Rights, and Management of Meaning in Sport - Drs Mac Ross & Michael McDougall - Meaningful Sport Series

October 15, 2021

The most recent Olympic Games in Tokyo were highly controversial for going forward despite the pandemic and resistance from the local community. Many debates have been held on whether those Games were a success or a failure, and importantly, for whom? The games were certainly exceptional due to the pandemic, but on the other hand, they were similar to previous games in many ways, such as by exceeding the budget and involving human rights concerns that are rarely mentioned in the ‘official’ Olympic narratives.

In today's episode with Drs Mac Ross and Michael McDougall, we will have a critical conversation of the potential dark sides of the Olympics. We start off by reflecting a bit on skateboarding as a new Olympic sport and the management of meaning that takes place when new 'sports' are included. We then ask about the impact of the Olympics on local communities and whether the Games are doing more harm than good, especially for the worlds most vulnerable populations.

Dr Mac Ross is an Assistant professor of kinesiology at Western University in London, Ontario, where he teaches history, sociology and management of sport.

October 8, 2021

This is the second part of our conversation on storytelling in physical education with Jim Harte. In the past decade, Jim has worked with an innovative approach to physical education which is about inviting young people into a story and living that story throughout the school year. The story is lived through in songs (musical learning) and a performance that finishes the school year.

In this second part of the episode, we explore where the stories come from, learn about the ideas behind this year's story "The 20th Kid" and hear about the legacy that Jim hopes to leave in the world of physical education.

Jim has recently retired but continues to be active for example via his YouTube channel that includes resources (tips, interviews, etc.) for students, players and coaches. You can follow Jim on Twitter @Msccamp

/Republication/ Already One Day of Sedentary Behaviour Impairs Insulin Sensitivity! Dr Audrey Bergouignan

/Republication/ Already One Day of Sedentary Behaviour Impairs Insulin Sensitivity! Dr Audrey Bergouignan

October 6, 2021

Dr Audrey Bergouignan has PhD in Physiology and Biology of Organisms. She holds a permanent researcher position at French National Centre for Scientific Research and leads international lab between University of Colorado and CNRS.

Their research goals are to understand the mechanisms by which sedentary behaviors contribute to the development and progression of metabolic diseases and to develop preventive strategies for the metabolic alterations induced by sedentariness.

The first axis of research is investigating the physiology of sedentary behaviors and physical inactivity by using an integrative approach studying the different levels of integration from the whole-body level to organ, cell, protein and genes in controlled lab-setting studies (bed-rest studies and reduced physical activity).

The second axis of research aims at developing and implementing novel practical and cost-effective strategies to reduce time spent in sedentary activities and promote physical activity in the real world including at work. They are currently testing the efficacy and feasibility of microbursts of activity by comparison to traditional exercise to reduce time spent sitting and improve metabolism.

In a translational perspective, their ultimate goal is to bring objective and convincing evidence to help refining public health and occupational health guidelines.
