Summer is the Season of Sport

Posted on 21-05-2012

So what is on this summer in terms of Sport?

  • Formula 1 Grand Prix
  • Wimbledon
  • Euro 2012

And not to mention the Olympics and Paralympics held in London this year.

This summer is set to be one of the biggest sporting summers in history. With the club football season now over, the attention now turns for football fans to the Euros in Poland and Ukraine.

With an exhilarating start already to the F1 2012 season, competition and excitement is at an extremely high level for several of the European Races coming hard and fast, and with so many former World Champions in the grid, it is really gripping to watch.

But the main focus this year in terms of sport is obviously the Olympics and Paralympics. Thousands of athletes of all shapes and sizes and from all reaches of the world travel to London (and in some cases other places throughout the UK) to test the skills and training against their peers is the pursuit of Olympic Gold Glory. From sleek cross country runners to martial arts experts and from gymnasts and swimmers to archers; London 2012 is the place to be for sport.The summer is the season that sees the biggest take up in sports, from football and swimming to running and tennis. Summer is unquestionably the season of sport participation; since the football season is over, weekends are free once again for so many people in the UK and with the weather meant to be sunny (it is the UK so no guarantees) many more people take up an active sport rather than just watching it on TV. Which is why at Stonebridge and ElearnUK we have a range of sports courses that can not only help you get in shape but also help you to train others so you can get the most out of this season of sport.

    Hopefully, the Olympics has encourages more people to get involved with sports, whether it’s taking part or assisting those taking part. It has certainly revived my interest in Tennis and Badminton.

    I think that Sports Nutrition is definitely a good course. It's useful for everyone who engages in sport, not just those who want to use it for a profession.
