WEEK 3

This week rounded off with the second instalment of class assessments on the 'Birth of Modernisation in Sport'.  Two tasks in the first 3 weeks.  The program directors don't muck around! Also had guest lectures from Nick Bitel, Chief Executive of the London Marathon and Jenny Green/James Fuller from UK Anti-Doping.

Students Alex Cabot, Rob Swain and I have founded the 'FIFA Master 12th Edition football team' and as a result, our first fixture will be an outdoor 6-a-side tournament scheduled for this weekend.  Will be good to see the talent of the local Leicester community and pitch ourselves against a number of DMU students.

FUN FACT: The 1st October was the hottest day on record for Leicester in 2011.  Peaking at 27C, I wouldn't like to know how mild their summer has been.  Regardless, there are reports that by the end of the month, it will already be snowing. What a turnaround.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: "If it takes 10 to kill me, I'll take 9"...Legendary British cyclist Tommy Simpson who tragically died during Stage 13 of the Tour de France in 1967.
