Greg Groggel Reports from Beijing 2008 Olympics

What can you do with an IPE major? Well, if you are Greg Groggel (IPE 2006), you go to Beijing and report on the 2008 Olympics for NBC! Click on this link to read Greg's continuing Olympic Reports.

Greg studied the IPE 0f sports for his senior thesis (Global Recess: Sporting Alternatives to Idle Development) then traveled the world on his Watson Fellowship project, Chasing the Flame, which examined the political, economic and social impact of the Olympics on host countries. Greg worked for a U.S. soccer organization in New York until NBC called him to join its Olympic reporting team.

Congratulations, Greg. You are really living the dream!
