The post-Olympic Games experience : a qualitative investigation of Australian Rio Olympians / Andrew Bennis... [et al]

Bennie, Andrew

While research into Olympic Athletes’ career transitions and retirement has led to a deeper understanding of important factors for athletes in this context, considerably less is known about the experiences of athletes in the immediate phase following an Olympic Games. The purpose of this research was to investigate Australian Olympic athletes’ experiences during the period of time immediately following the conclusion of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. This involved investigating specific factors that influenced athletes’ post-Games realities of success, failure, and return to everyday life.
