Abstract

The increased detection of doping in professional sports has led to a strengthening of the discussion on the legal aspects of doping. So far criminal and/ or verbandsrechtliche questions were the focus. For example the question of whether and how sponsorship contracts may be terminated in cases of misconduct of the sponsored. First, it examines how appropriate cancellation clauses could be like. Second, consider the conditions under which, even without explicit rules for doping a termination in accordance with general principles of contract law is concerned. It also discusses the legal consequences of termination, and in particular its relationship to other contractual consequences of doping, such as claims for damages or penalties.

Abstract

In the complicated interaction between sport and law, much is revealed about the perception and understanding of consent and tolerable deviance. When a football player steps onto the field, what deviations from the rules of the game are considered acceptable? And what risks has the player already accepted by voluntarily participating in the sport? In the case of Canadian football, acts of on-field violence, hazing, and performance-enhancing drug use that would be considered criminal outside the context of sport are tolerated and even promoted by team and league administrators. The manner in which league review committees and the Canadian legal system understand such actions highlights the challenges faced by those looking to protect players from the dangers of the sport. Although there has been some discussion of legal and institutional reforms dealing with crime and deviance in Canadian sport, little exists in the way of sports law, with most cases falling into the legal categories of criminal, administrative, or civil law. In Game-Day Gangsters, Fogel argues for a review of the systems by which Canadian football is governed and analyzes the reforms proposed by football leagues and by players. Juxtaposing material from interviews with football players and administrators and from media files and legal cases, he explores the discrepancies between the playersÕ own experiences and the institutional handling of disciplinary matters in junior, university, and professional football leagues across the country.

Abstract

La plus fameuse de toutes les équipes de hockey est l'objet au Québec d'une formidable consolidation historique, identitaire, économique et culturelle. Plutôt que de nourrir le mythe du Grand Club — il n'en a guère besoin —, ce livre porte un regard critique sur son inscription sociale. De l'économie à la philosophie en passant par la sociologie, l'urbanisme et la science des religions, les auteurs conjuguent leurs perspectives pour tenter de mieux comprendre la place du Canadien dans la Cité.

Abstract

"The present case study investigates stress and recovery of the Danish national under-&#xD;20 ice hockey players during a training camp and the following World Championship. The aims&#xD;were to track their stress-recovery states longitudinally, and to map their main sources of stress&#xD;and recovery. Methods included a survey, qualitative interviews and a coach diary. Results showed&#xD;well-balanced stress-recovery states during the entire period, and the athletes stated that&#xD;this positively affected their well-being, and performance. The athletes’ perceived sources of&#xD;stress and recovery were classified into organizational, social, personal and athletic, with the&#xD;organizational decisions and strategies playing a major role in reducing unnecessary stress and&#xD;providing a good setting for engaging in recovery. The results lead us to suggest that coaches and&#xD;managers be very mindful of the potential influence of their decisions on the athletes’ stress and&#xD;recovery when preparing training camps and participation in major competitions."&#xD;

Abstract

On the one hand, sport like any other activity in society is burdened with public taxes, and on the other hand, in comparison to similar activities, is tax-free and even publicly supported. This ambivalence of tax treatment of sport has repeatedly raised questions about the public financing of sport: To what extent are services provided by the public sector justified, and to what extent do sporting events trigger taxation? This volume, edited by Hans-Peter Büch, Wolfgang Maennig and Hans-Jürgen Schulke, attempts to answer selected questions on this problem from a scientific and sports-political point of view under the motto "Science meets Practice".

Abstract

Ausgangspunkt der Untersuchung ist die Problematik der evidenzbasierten Erfassung der pädiatrischen Adipositasnachsorge und ihrer Wirksamkeit vor allem im Bezug auf die körperlich-sportliche Aktivität. Forschungsdefizite in den Bereichen der Längsschnittstudien, hohe Drop-Out-Raten der Untersuchungsstichproben, mangelhafte Stichprobenbeschreibungen und der lückenhafte Erkenntnisstand bezüglich der langfristigen Compliance der Kinder bildeten den Ansatz der vorliegenden Arbeit. Die Studie leistet einen Beitrag, diese Forschungsdefizite auszugleichen.

Abstract

Green space has become a major issue in European cities in recent years as a result of enhanced environmental awareness, urban marketing, planning policy and growing population densities. Up to now, however, the subject of sports areas and grounds has attracted little research, despite the fact that since the First World War such public and private areas – from football pitches and running tracks to golf courses and tennis courts – have often comprised one of the most important and extensive types of green space in the European city. This book presents a pioneering comparative and multidisciplinary analysis of the development, use and impact of sports areas in the European city from the start of the 20th century up to the present time. Employing a range of historical, spatial and ecological approaches it examines when and why sports areas evolved, the contribution of municipalities and the private sector, the role of gender and class, and the impact on the urban landscape and ecology. Chapters cover urban sports areas in Finland, Britain, the Netherlands, Germany and Italy, illustrating the contrasts in the provision of green space across Europe.&#xD;

Abstract

Dès la préhistoire, puis dans toutes les cultures, le taux des gauchers a avoisiné les 10 %. Environnés de droitiers, ils ont toujours été considérés comme des individus singuliers, marqués, selon les époques et les lieux, d’un potentiel plus ou moins funeste ou génial. Il restait à s’interroger sur la singularité du statut des droitiers eux-mêmes, dont le comportement est plus étroitement stéréotypé et asymétrique que celui des gauchers. Quels sont les avantages d’une telle asymétrie fonctio...

Abstract

Sport - in particular high-performance sport - is a fascination that is used as a platform for societal concerns. This is the base for different interests in active and passive sports and the state's interest in top-class sport. In most countries, top-class sport is a national concern: states train their athletes in national training centres, support their sports associations in international competitions or promote applications for major sporting events.The articles in this volume provide a well-founded insight into the organisation of high-performance sport and show the different paths of selected countries.

Abstract

How do new technologies come to be used in sport? This book moves beyond the idea of functionality to explore the many other important factors that athletes and sporting bodies consider throughout the process of adoption. Few would question the difficulty of producing an elite athletic performance. The high level of training, combined with intense competition and pressure from media and sponsors, can be challenging for athletes and sporting bodies to negotiate. The book investigates how these factors affect the use of technology in sport, while simultaneously demonstrating the influence of new technologies on sporting practice. Using actor-network theory – an approach common in studies of science and management but seldom applied in this field – it offers readers an inside view into elite sport and the part that technology plays in training, competition and broadcasting.
