The theme of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, “live your passion,” is a concept that College of Health and Human Development faculty, staff, and students have long embraced in their scholarly and professional activities. Three kinesiology department faculty and alumni — Andrea Becker, Traci Statler, and Larnie Boquiren — brought this idea to the global stage at this summer’s games in Rio.
On Wednesday, November 2, Becker, Statler, and Boquiren will share their experiences training Olympians for the physical and mental rigor of the games. Center for Sociocultural Sport and Olympic Research co-directors John Gleaves, Matt Llewellyn, and Toby Rider will also share their thoughts on the historic games.
Seating is first-come, first served. Arrive early to secure your spot!
