Widening participation: the Winter Games and investment in facilities

Description

England has never been known for its majestic mountain ranges, or for its epic year-round snowfall. Nor are the British public known for their expertise in, and enthusiasm for, snow sports such as skiing, slalom, bobsleigh, skeleton or snowboarding. How then, did an English athlete manage to demonstrate a Gold-medal winning performance in the Skeleton event that claimed victory over all of the other great snow sports nations such as Austria, Switzerland, Canada and the US?

Description

There are hundreds of different sports across the globe, and many vie and jostle for a place on the Olympic and Paralympic roster.

Genderisation and sexuality of the female Olympic athelete

Description

Clayton (2002) argue that tennis player Anna Kournikova represents the most powerful symbol of genderisation in sport. Such a supposition is interesting as Kournikova, while successful, never really achieved dominance in her game, instead being better recognised in recent years for her modelling and celebrity profile. The image of Kournikova is, no doubt, a sexualised one

Only a few key sports display the kind of rapid, global growth that catch people’s attention and raise the long-term potential for the sport to gain its place on the world stage – which may include Olympic and Paralympic recognition. Cheerleading is one such sport, which is currently enjoying a rapid increase in global participation, an explosion of coaching awards and newly qualified coaches, strides forward in the quality of competition and development of Governing bodies, and a clear denunciation between the dance and stunting disciplines of the sport
