Genre: Sports & Recreation

Rethinking Drinking and Sport examines the complex nature of sport-related drinking. With close attention to the contradictory nature of sport-related drinking, this book considers both 'the problem' of drinking in sport, as well as some of the issues for treatment and recovery that sports-related drinking presents. Bringing together a range of methodological and theoretical debates that address the relationships between alcohol and sport, Rethinking Drinking and Sport draws on rich new interview material with fans and both drinking and non-drinking sportsmen and women, as well as documentary and media sources. Based on research across a variety of sports in the UK and Australia, Rethinking Drinking and Sport explores not only the relationship between alcohol, fans, participants and industry, but also questions of gender and identity to provide fresh insights into the complex relationships between drinking and sport. Examining possible directions for health and public policy in relation to sport-related drinking, this book will appeal to social scientists and policy makers with interests in consumption, leisure, sport, drinking, and health.

Genre: Sports & Recreation

Originell, faszinierend, abenteuerlich: ein Journalist auf der Suche nach dem letzten Geheimnis des Sports Seine Passion: das Laufen, sein Beruf: das Schreiben. Christopher McDougall suchte eine Antwort auf eine vermeintlich einfache Frage: Warum tut mir mein Fuß weh? Wie er sind Millionen von Hobbyläufern mindestens einmal im Jahr ernsthaft verletzt. Nach unzähligen Zyklen des Dauerschmerzes, der Kortisonspritzen und immer neuer Hightech-Sportschuhen stand McDougall kurz davor, zu kapitulieren und die Diagnose der Mediziner ein für alle Mal hinzunehmen: „Sie sind einfach nicht zum Laufen gemacht.“ Stattdessen hat sich der Journalist weit abseits der kostspieligen Empfehlungen von Ärzten und Ausrüstern auf eine abenteuerliche Reise zu den geheimnisvollsten und besten Läufern der Welt begeben. Eine Reise, die McDougall in die von Mythen erfüllten Schluchten der Copper Canyons in Mexiko führen sollte, wo ein Volk lebt, das sich seit Jahrhunderten unter extremen Bedingungen seine Lebensweise bewahrt hat. Die Tarahumara verkörpern den menschlichen Bewegungsdrang in seiner reinsten und faszinierendsten Form. Laufen über lange Strecken ist für sie so selbstverständlich wie atmen. Was wussten sie, was McDougall nicht wusste? In seiner Reportage geht er den vergessenen Geheimnissen der Tarahumara nach. Er verbindet lebendiges Infotainment über neueste evolutionsbiologische und ethnologische Erkenntnisse mit zahlreichen, inspirierenden Porträts von Menschen, die sich – egal, ob sie zum Spaß das Death Valley durchqueren oder einen Ultramarathon in den Rocky Mountains absolvieren – eines bewahrt haben: die Freude daran, laufen zu können wie ein Kind. Einfach immer weiter. Denn in Wahrheit, so McDougalls Fazit, sind wir alle zum Laufen geboren.
