Here is the overview:

Dear Athletes and Learners,

Do you know how to use social media to enhance your sporting career?

Are you prepared for the tough questions from the media that come straight after competition?

Have you thought about moving into the media after your stop competing?

Join Prof Andy Miah, Chair in Science Communication and Digital Media at the University of Salford, as he talks exclusively to Modern Pentathlon Olympic silver medallist and reigning world champion, Samantha Murray.

Following her Olympic success, Samantha has been exposed to a level of media attention she could never have imagined. From radio interviews, magazine articles, television shows and personal appearances, Samantha has done them all – hear exactly how she has dealt with her new found fame and hear her tips on how you can do the same.

Plus learn from Alex Trickett, Head of Sport for Twitter UK about his top tips for athletes who want to actively use social media platforms.

This live event will also include interactive polls and give you the opportunity to ask your own questions in a dedicated Q&A session towards the end of the event.

Limited spaces available, register now to reserve your place.


Best wishes

The IOC Athlete MOOC Team
