Back in February, as part of Social Media Week, Synergy and Jam co-hosted the first Socialympics, a panel debate on the implications of London 2012 being the first social media Olympic and Paralympic games.

It was such a success, that by popular demand, we staged Socialympics 2, once again bringing together key players in the London Socialympics to review what was a historic moment in sport and sports marketing.

The panel featured representatives from the Olympics, the news media, social media and the athlete community, including Joe Morgan and Hugh Chambers from the British Olympic Association, Chris Gilbody, sales manager at Twitter, Gab Stone, founder of GS Management, Paul Kelso, Sports Editor for the Daily Telegraph, Dominic Curran, deputy MD at Synergy, and Jamie Kenny, strategy diretor at JAM.
