The games start now: The Sports Aid Charity Run 2020
In order to support the athletes in the best possible way, the German Sports Aid has created the #sporthilfespiele. As a highlight of the campaign, a large virtual sports aid donation run will take place on 5/6 September.
The aim of the charity run is to virtually complete the 12,508 km to Tokyo as often as possible together with athletes, fans, companies and particularly lecturers and students of the IfS to collect donations for the athletes.
The summer semester was dominated by the management of the Corona pandemic. From mid-March onwards, we had to change our entire research and teaching programme at short notice. Even if not everything was perfect, we managed to do this quite well thanks to the great commitment of all those involved - students and staff. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved once again for their commitment during this difficult semester! What else happened in our institute can be found in the 31st announcements from the Institute of Sports Science.
International Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology - Code of Ethics
An online version of the Code of Ethics of the International Society of Sport Psychology (ISSP) has just been published in the International Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology. A total of 24 international experts were involved in the development of the ethical guidelines for sport psychology practice, which were compiled as part of the initiative of an international database of sport psychology experts. Among them was Dr. Sebastian Brückner from the Department of Sport Psychology at the WWU. The publication can be viewed here.

The two researchers Julian Rudisch, Nils Pixa as well as the director Claudia Voelcker-Rehage, contributed to the new edition of "The Routledge International Encyclopedia of Sport and Exercise Psychology, Volume 1: Theoretical and Methodological Concepts".
