Welcome to our Winter Olympics blog. We will be using this blog to post articles and comments relating to the 2014 Winter Olympics from our perspective as academics in sport and exercise science.
The Winter Olympics will be taking place in Sochi, Russia between 6th-23rd February 2014, and will no doubt provide an amazing spectacle of sport and plenty of opportunity to apply our knowledge of sport and exercise science.
We plan to cover a wide range of sport and fitness related topics in this blog over the coming weeks. We will be starting later in the week with an article by Simon Rea reviewing the success and failure of British athletes at the Winter Olympics in comparison to the Summer Olympics.
