ACSM Joins the Olympics Buzz—What's Your Role?

The London Olympics are just around the corner, and ACSM is gearing up to play its part. The Olympic Games take place July 27-August 12, and the Paralympic Games run Aug. 29-Sept. 9. We anticipate a surge of media inquiries and lots of interest from the general public in topics relating to athlete health, sports performance, fitness and conditioning.

These games have been dubbed the Social Media Games or "socialympics” and are anticipated to be the most liked, tweeted, and tagged sporting event in history. ACSM’s Olympics communication program will embrace the momentum of the social media movement—and there are multiple ways you can have a role:
  • If you are an ACSM Fellow, have expertise in an area related to the Olympics, and are great at explaining science in a clear, simple manner, we'd love to discuss how you can share your insights with the media. Perhaps you can augment (and eventually join) the ACSM Media Referral Network, a volunteer panel of physicians, researchers, educators and certified professionals who are available for the interview requests and inquiries we receive from the media. Please contact to learn more.
  • Are you a diehard Olympics fan? Please help us identify hot topics, intriguing controversies and expert insights to highlight on the ACSM website and across our social media platforms. Share your ideas on our Facebook page or contact Annie Bell at
  • Join the conversation! We will be tweeting and posting right alongside Olympians, fans and everyone else. Please Follow us on Twitter and Like us on Facebook to participate in the discussions and share your thoughts. We especially encourage students to join in.
