Now you have a good understanding of the 5 Olympic Values and have seen examples(positive and negative) of athletes displaying these values, we would like you to digdeeper.Part A:Choose
of the following tasks to complete.
Choose one of the Olympic Values and compare and contrast the different ways the valueshave been expressed over time:
Balance between mind, body and character
(for example, going to the gym, the role of the coaches).
Joy in effort
(the changing ways athletes celebrate after winning or competing).
Pursuit of excellence
(for example, the influence of technology).
Respect for others
(for example, women in sport).
(for example, performance enhancing drugs in sport).
Reflect on how values conflicts have challenged the Olympic movement in its 100-year history (for example, world wars, boycotts, drug scandals, corruption, prejudices).
Choose one of these themes to investigate in detail over the history of the modern Olympics.
Part B: Write a report on an athlete that has clearly displayed one of the Olympic Values at an Olympic event. Use the Nick Willis example from class to guide you for this. (see sheet attached)
Write a report on an athlete that is a poor example of showing one of these Olympic Values.For Example,
Nadzeya Ostapchuk from Belarus losing her gold medal after her drug tests were positive.
