Recently I conducted a survey on “ethics in sport” and one of the questions I asked was “do you believe that sport is based on inequality?” It wasn’t a quota or race question. If you cast you minds back to when your children were about five years old, even younger for some, when they started learning to play sport for the first time, you will remember that there are some children who just looked liked naturals. We are called individuals for a reason; we have different strengths, talents, abilities and genetics. We learn about winning and losing and we learn that we win or lose for different reasons such as skills, experience and attitude. So is sport based on inequality?
