[11/06/12]   For anyone who wants to get involved in the planning and running of the "Olympic Themed Night" we're having a meeting tomorrow in the Canteen at 3:15. Everyones welcome, could do with the help.

Check out our new poster for the upcoming Paralympic talk and the Olympic themed night!!

[10/26/12]   Ok lads we are opening this one to the group...On the Olympic Themed Night we are having one of our main events and we are looking for ideas..it's called the ''Discus Wheel of Faith'' and its basically a wheel of prizes & forfeits....so we are looking for ideas to put up on the wheel!

So get your ideas up here!!!

[10/24/12]   Right, WIT Sport & Health Science is having its first event on the 14th NOVEMBER.

The night is dedicated to the achievements of the Irish Paralympics team in the 2012 Paralympic games. At 6.30pm there will be a talk in FO3 from volunteers, physiologist and psychologist that worked with the athletes in London. These people will be talking about the experiences and what it was like working with the athletes. This will be followed by a Q&A and will go on till around 7.15pm. It’s a great opportunity to get an insight into what athletes go through for such a serious competition.

AND THEN, starting at 9.00pm Olympic themed night in the Dome. 3 euro admission. Exercise &Health + Sport Performance Coaching Vs Rec Man + Health Promotion. Olympic events on the night with a bit of a twist, so good we’re hoping they’ll be in the Olympics for real in 2016. One of these events is the Beer Relay. We’re also looking for 2 volunteers to go head to head in the ultimate test of manliness by taking on the task of “Rhythmic Gymnastics” using the Ribbon. There’ll be other events on the night too.
