This website from the Geographical Association links geographical themes such as regeneration, economic development and tourism with global sporting events.

The Beijing Olympic and Paralympic Games 2008 are looked at in detail, and the site also features sections on Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, the FIFA World Cup in Germany 2006 and a section on medal mapping.

There are also a variety of materials developed around the London Olympic and Paralympic Games 2012, including fieldwork ideas, photos and links to websites, journal articles and teaching resources which may be useful for background information and activities:
