Like everyone around the world watching the Olympics, much of our attention has been focused on the sports world lately. Perhaps nowhere is organizational effectiveness and teamwork more obviously on display and directly measurable, than in sports. With that in mind, we wanted to pass along some recent stories that highlight how the Mason Nation is contributing to the world of sports.
- Mason’s S.M.A.R.T. Lab just published a new study examining head injuries among lacrosse players
- The Center for Study of Sport and Leisure in Society published “Errors of Olympic Proportion: The IOC, NBC and London 2012,” which discusses some of the negatives of this year’s Olympic Games.
- Mason’s Center for Sport Management and SportsUnited’s Sports Visitors Program continue to partner to bring global communities together by giving young athletes and coaches, often from underprivileged countries, the opportunity to engage with their overseas counterparts (including a day at The EDGE!)
- Last but certainly not least, our heartfelt congratulations go out to the Mason athletes who are participating in this year’s Olympic Games.
