Hundreds of journalism students from around the country had the opportunity last September to see some of the best at their craft working under the most trying conditions, while at the same time gain invaluable work experience. They volunteered to work in the various media centres at the Sydney 2000 Olympics. The author, who supervised students covering the sailing on Sydney Harbour for the Olympic News Service, evaluates the student Olympic experience in light of the popularity of sports reporting among journalism students.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
