Learn the history of Olympic Games and find out what meaning they had in the past and how people perceive them now.Examine what impact violence in sports has on society as a whole and children in particular.

In this way, social processes associated with masculine identities and the working classes inform what was considered possible, permissible and pleasurable.
It is contended that phenomenologically informed accounts of such pleasurable experiences of violence remain relatively underrepresented within research examining sports participation.
Inside and around the ring, men learned the techniques and tactics of mimetic violence.
These experiences enabled a socially conditioned, controlled decontrolling of emotional controls and the elicitation of physical sensations that generally remain off limits during the relative emotional and physical staleness of their work-a-day lives.
The central focus of this thesis is to provide such an account within a boxing environment.
As such, the observations and interviews presented in what follows contribute to the sociological study of sports violence in particular and violence more generally.
Alongside this substantive dimension, there are also conceptual, theoretical and methodological contributions that can inform future sociological study in the area and more broadly.
Specifically, the contention that experiences of sports violence tend to contain a mimetic dimension and a figurational or processes sociological interpretation of such experiences, are empirically evaluated.
This overarching frame is linked to local factors that also impinge upon the gym space.
With these social fault lines explored, a phenomenologically sensitive account of sports violence is presented.
