My name is Verity, and I am the Associate Tutor for the module Sport and Diplomacy: 'More than a Game.' The module combines a number of my research interests and specialisms, including, governance, international sport, sport history and sport organisations. My research has a focus on the International Olympic Committee and the Olympic Movement.

Outside of tutoring I am in the second year of a full time MPhil/PhD course that is titled- The Mechanics of Inspiring a Generation. The research considers how has the London 2012 legacy aim to Inspire a Generation affected the policy around sport in the education sector- from bidding in 2002 to the present day- within the United Kingdom? The research is qualitative and involves both archival and interview methodologies.
