It's hard to believe that America's most popular sport was played so different from today. In 1887, there was no NFL, only college football played mostly along the East Coast. A forward pass was a penalty and players did not suffer only from concussions, they often died. The ball was nothing like it is today. This is a view of the game of American football as it was played in 1887, with 13 illustrations

This e-book is the optimal tool for every player that would like to improve his or her handicap. Mental powers and peak performance does not happen by chance, they are the result of goal-oriented and systematic practice. To each player, anyone from the club player with a green card and the junior national team players to the professional players, 18 holes on the golf course equal 18 challenges. This does not only refer to technical and tactical skills, but especially for the mind, golf psychology starts long before the first hole.<br /><br />The mentally oriented golf training presented in this practical exercise e-book covers the buildup of the mental skills in order to be able to keep these balanced when put under pressure at competitions and stressful situations. Thanks to this e-book each player should be able to top his or her performance when it matters.

This amazing work allows us to delve deep into a retrospective view of how the African American athlete was handled in practically every HBCU during a season and a time when the masses were in denial about the climatic effects on their lives. Dr. Jarvis’s accomplished work engrafted as part of his doctoral dissertation lends to the ear of the learned and unlearned. Many will see this work as an eye opener while others view it as a final means to an end in providing a candid view to truth concerning a possible turnaround in how athletes are treated differently in this century. This book makes one want to have a roundtable discussion to encourage the athletes of today while applauding those from yesteryear who were victims of this cycle of abuse. As we transform a nation, we must work backwards to heal as we move forward to restore. I applaud Dr. Jarvis for his tenacity in “getting the word out” to those who have the spirit to hear!

Considérez le sport hippique et voyez comme il donne bien l’image de la vie. Aucun autre ne l’égale en cela. L’âme — esprit et caractère — est un cavalier qui chevauche le corps, animal plus fort que lui et à la merci duquel il se trouverait s’il ne le maniait avec un art suffisant pour diriger et dompter cette force. Il faut que le cavalier prenne du plaisir à sa besogne, qu’il soit confiant, persévérant et souple, bien en équilibre et résolu à ne pas se laisser désarçonner ou du moins à se relever aussitôt pour sauter de nouveau en selle. Il faut encore qu’il ait la main légère et qu’il ne procède jamais par à coups, qu’il gradue habilement les obstacles et veille avec intelligence et zèle sur la santé de sa monture ; qu’àl’occasion il sache la flatter, lui rendre la main ou la tenir habilement en haleine ; qu’enfin, lorsqu’un effort exceptionnel s’impose, il n’hésite pas à se servir de la cravache et de l’éperon. Quel beau manuel de morale écrirait un écuyer consommé s’il remplaçait seulement, dans la série de ses préceptes, les termes de cheval et de cavalier par ceux de corps et d’âme. Et ne voyons-nous pas tous les jours les accidents que causent, aussi bien sur les pistes immatérielles de la vie qu’à travers les champs et les halliers véritables, la poltronnerie des uns et la brutalité des autres ? Combien ont été emballés et jetés bas ou sont restés démontés pour n’avoir pas su doser à propos leurs exigences de cavaliers, pour avoir laissé leur bête s’émanciper ou pour n’avoir pas su la ménager à temps… Il se trouvera peut-être une fois un professeur de philosophie amateur d’équitation qui voudra traiter ce beau sujet en manière de discours de distribution de prix. Qu’on nous excuse de lui en avoir signalé ici l’intérêt.<br /><br /><br />

Life is meant to be lived fully. Unfortunately, too many allow life to live them, and as a result, success is out of reach. A fully engaged life always begins in the mind, impacting thoughts, feelings, and actions to create the pathways and habits responsible for success. Elite competitors start with a purpose-driven mental approach to their success, so much so that it becomes their identity – their Manifesto.<br /><br />The MindSide Manifesto dives into the factors that often rob athletes, coaches, and leaders of their ability to live and compete to their full intent. By exploring the traps that commonly limit success and developing your focused, driven mindset, dreams become reality. Only when you fully declare your Manifesto and commit to the plan of achieving it, will you reach your true potential. <br /><br />It is your choice – Are you willing to invest in you and your Manifesto?

5 juin 2016 : vainqueur de Roland-Garros, Novak Djokovic entre dans la légende. Il parvient à compléter son Grand Chelem en carrière, accomplissant ce qu’aucun joueur n’avait réussi depuis 47 ans : remporter quatre titres du Grand Chelem de suite. <br /><br />La Quête de Roland-Garros est le récit de cette victoire historique vue de l’intérieur. Un regard unique dans l’univers d’un des plus grands champions. Malgré les larmes, les blessures, les doutes et la pression, le Djoker a mis ses adversaires à terre, et a trouvé comment déverrouiller son histoire, porté par une foule et un pays qui l’avaient adopté. <br /><br />Plongez dans les coulisses de ce triomphe : une histoire de résilience et d’acharnement face aux coups du sort. C’est aussi à son apogée que le champion découvre que pour cette victoire, il y a un prix à payer. <br /><br />Carole Bouchard, reporter tennis pour les médias français et internationaux, a suivi ce formidable combat dans les tournois du monde. Grâce à des interviews exclusives de Novak Djokovic, Boris Becker et Marián Vajda, ses coaches, Rod Laver, Guy Forget, Maria Sharapova et beaucoup d’autres experts, elle nous livre une fascinante lecture du parcours de cet athlète d’exception.

<P>While efforts to include gay and lesbian athletes in competitive sport have received significant attention, it is only recently that we have begun examining the experiences of transgender athletes in competitive sport. This book represents the first comprehensive study of the challenges that transgender athletes face in competitive sport; and the challenges they pose for this sex-segregated institution. Beginning with a discussion of the historical role that sport has played in preserving sex as a binary, the book examines how gender has been policed by policymakers within competitive athletics. It also considers how transgender athletes are treated by a system predicated on separating males from females, consequently forcing transgender athletes to negotiate the system in coercive ways. The book not only exposes our culture’s binary thinking in terms of both sex and gender, but also offers a series of thought-provoking and sometimes contradictory recommendations for how to make sport more hospitable, inclusive and equitable.</P><I><br /><P>Transgender Athletes in Competitive Sport </I>is important reading for all students and scholars of the sociology of sport with an interest in the relationship between sport and gender, politics, identity and ethics. </P>
