The 2018 Winter Olympics

by Roz Hertz

The world of sports presents an exceptional environment for uniting people of all countries. It promotes teamwork and competition while providing enjoyment for its participants and its audiences. The 2018 Winter Olympics will be held in South Korea during February. OLLI fans of the Olympic Games will have a unique opportunity with Jane Adair, who will be the instructor for a class on The 2018 Winter Olympics.
Jane Adair has taught classes about the Olympics at OLLI during previous Olympic seasons. This year she will teach her class once a week before and while the games are in process. She has a PhD in Sports Psychology and for twenty years taught in the Kinesiology Department at CSULB. Most of us cannot easily fly to South Korea, but we can still feel a strong presence of being in the country through television coverage of the events and contests and by watching clips on the internet. Whether you are a new fan or a lifetime fan of the Olympics, Jane intends to add much more to the enjoyment of the winter games by including historical information about the Olympic movement, the politics that inevitably surround these games, and the reason tight security is necessary. Class discussion pertaining to the games and events will be welcomed.
Note that the beginning of Ms. Adair’s classes does not coincide with the
Olympics: the first class starts two weeks prior to the opening ceremony. What the class participants will learn in the first two sessions should enhance their appreciation of the actual performances. The beginning and closing ceremonies offer excitement and entertainment to audiences. However, the athletes and their achievements truly reveal the purpose of this prestigious event.
