A History of Sport and Exercise
The Olympics and Paralympics are undoubtedly the world’s most truly global spectator events, yet most histories of the Olympics fail to place them in the context of a history of the interconnections between the world’s peoples. Olympic sports are founded on one of the most ancient of sports cultures, but histories of sports, body cultivation and sports medicines in non-European cultures are only just now beginning to emerge.
With the two Olympic Games sited in Beijing and London it has proved timely to explore the diverse traditions of perfecting body and soul, as a fascinating historical project in itself, but also to provide a rich context for envisioning the relationship between movement and health. This section of our website is dedicated to the history of Sport and Exercise worldwide.
