[[[image-0 medium right]]]The Rio Olympic Games are being held from the 5th to the 21st August 2016. Building on their success in the 2008 Olympics, the British cycling team topped the medals table 4 years ago at the 2012 London Olympics.

To coincide with the Rio Olympics there is a new featured item on the OU Digital Archive focussing on a selection of Open University programmes featuring the technology behind the development of the bicycle.

The article also includes links to information about sports qualifications at the OU and you can try your hand at ‘Medal Quest’ an interactive sports game on the OU site OpenLearn.
