Johan Ekberg

Johan Ekberg is a master´s student in Sport Science at Malmö University. With a first degree in International Relations his research interests tends to circle around political aspects of international sports. Recently however, he has developed a particular interest in Olympic Studies, and more precisely the Olympic philosophy of Olympism. In September of 2015, as a nominee of the Swedish Olympic Committee he took part in the 22nd International Seminar for Olympic Studies arranged by the International Olympic Academy where he presented the theme of his on-gong master thesis: “Deconstructing Olympism”.

Furthermore, he keeps a blog in which he offers his views on whatever issue of a sport scientific character has on his mind.
