An­cient Olympic site pro­vides stu­dents with sports in­spi­ra­tion

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

Sports stu­dents from Dundee and An­gus Col­lege are set­ting off to visit one of the most his­toric sport­ing venues in the world.

The 22-strong group are trav­el­ling to Olympia, the site of the an­cient Olympic Games, in Greece.

At the In­ter­na­tional Olympic Academy they will learn about ideals such as the value of sport and the cul­tural dif­fer­ences in re­la­tion to sport and fit­ness.

Stephen Mc­gre­gor, head of learn­ing for sports and fit­ness at the col­lege, said: “An ed­u­ca­tional trip is a truly pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ence that of­fers stu­dents the chance to en­hance their time at col­lege with some­thing unique.

“It’s lovely to see stu­dents so ex­cited about learn­ing.”
