Champions' feedback

Otylia Jedrzejczak
Polish swimmer and Olympic champion

RIOU has a conventional university structure – up to a point. The majority of our time in class is spent listening and learning about the different aspects and practices of sport administration with one of RIOU's expert professors. But there are all sorts of visitors coming to see us who pass on their experience and knowledge. We were so proud when IOC President Thomas Bach decided to visit in October and very grateful for the time he spent answering our questions. One student asked Mr Bach about career prospects and he told us all that, after graduating from RIOU, the doors of the IOC will be open for us to apply for a job there. That information has made us all even more dedicated to our studies! We are a motivated group anyway and have a lot of ideas about how to change sport administration for the better. We feel like we can fly and our lecturers encourage our ambitions; and maybe help us keep our feet on the ground at times too.

Catherine O'Grady
World champion in kickboxing

For as long as I can remember, my goal in life has been to manage high performance athletes. RIOU's Master of Sport Administration course holds the key to achieving this ambition by providing me with the competitive edge I strive for. Working within an Olympic setting will be like a dream come true, while an understanding of the business, marketing and management worlds that are intrinsically entwined with the sports industry and its smooth and successful operations will undoubtedly benefit me and open a vast array of doors in the sports business sector. On a more profound and personal level, it's a fact that women are still largely under-represented in leadership roles within the sporting realm, especially as high-performance coaches. This opportunity with RIOU can only be for the good by providing more women with the necessary professional skills to both succeed in and influence the sports industry in the future. I fully appreciate that being chosen as the Irish representative on RIOU's MSA course is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity so I will ensure that I gain as much experience and knowledge from it as I possibly can.

Svetlana Khorkina
Two-time olympic champion

I would like to emphasize exceptional competency and professionalism of the faculty. The nuances of sports management in the current international context are explained to students in accessible and interactive manner. Taking a professional development course at RIOU gives an opportunity to upgrade knowledge and skills and align them to world-class standards. After completing the course I will be able to apply new knowledge in my practical activities which creates basis for new achievements on the international Olympic stage.

I wish RIOU great success in the future and growth in student enrolment.

Dmitry Sautin
Two-time Olympic champion, Vice-President of the Russian Diving Federation, member of the Voronezh Regional Duma

I believe that studying at the Olympic University can provide the right support to ex-athletes in their lives after sport. Taking just a one-year course at RIOU will allow them to find a good job in the sports industry. And it's not spectator sports only. With such training, you can also attract sponsors, organise successful events and make a profit in diving or gymnastics, for example. RIOU graduates have a huge advantage over others.
