Managing Body Image During Retirement from Sport

About this event

Retired athletes are invited to attend a free, interactive webinar designed to support them to achieve a healthy body image during retirement.

The webinar, lead by an international team of experts in applied sport psychology, body image, and disordered eating, will focus on:

  • Understanding a variety of body image issues across retirement from sport
  • The dos and don'ts of coping with body changes during retirement
  • Highlight unique insights into the body image experiences of retired Olympians
  • And give participants the opportunity to share knowledge and experiences with other athletes

This event is part of a research project funded by the IOC Olympic Studies Centre.
