    Discursive struggles in the gendering of national team pay in Norwegian football

    In 2017, the Norwegian Football Federation (NFF) decided to offer the men’s and the women’s national teams an equal share of the revenue from the federation’s sponsorship deals. This was regarded as a groundbreaking event in the history of women’s football. This peer review article by Arve Hjelseth and Jorid Hovden examines the process that led to this result by exploring the discourses of gender justice negotiated in the process.

In the discussion of its findings, the study considers Sheridan’s conceptualisation of fair play, which employs seven perspectives on fair play that take the term ‘ethos’ as a key concept.

    Ut på tur med app: Teknologi i hverdagens bevegelseskultur

    Hensikten med studien av Odd Lennart Vikene, Reidun Nerhus Fretland, Sylvia Hole og Helga Synnevåg Løvoll er å utforske hvordan ny teknologi i form av appen Georeg har innvirkning på turgåingen. Analysen av intervjumaterialet identifiserte fire overordnede temaer: 1) fra trimbok til app, 2) hvordan appen regulerer og former, 3) appen skaper motstridende følelser og 4) når teknologien tar styring. Funnene illustrerer både positive og negative sider ved bruk av app og en tydelig ambivalens kommer til uttrykk.

    Motives, Motivation, and Motivational Climate of Young Norwegian Swimmers, and their Parents’ Belief

    Motivation is important for enjoyment, skill development, and persistence in swimming. The quality and direction of motivation is influenced by a swimmer’s perceived motivational climate, which is created by coaches and parents. The theoretical framework in this study by Ingeborg Ljødal and colleagues combines self-determination theory and achievement goal theory, to analyze the motives and motivation of swimmers and the influence of social climate on their motivation.

    The politics–administration dichotomy in support for national sport guidelines in local government: The views of Finnish municipal top decision-makers on child and youth physical activity guidelines

    While autonomous municipalities in western societies have become responsible for the implementation of national sport policy, the diversity of local decision-makers’ policy interests presents significant challenges. Building on an institutional approach based on Max Weber’s theory of bureaucracy, the problem is addressed in this study by Anna Lee and colleagues, by investigating local political and administrative top decision-makers’ support of the Sports Act guidelines for child and youth sport in Finland.

    Barn- och ungdomsidrottens entreprenörer på en kommersiell spelplan – en positioneringsanalys

    I den här artikeln undersöker Jesper Karlsson och kollegor hur kommersiella idrottsentreprenörer inom barn- och ungdomsidrott positionerar sig själva och sina verksamheter i förhållande till den svenska föreningsidrotten.

Sammanfattningsvis positionerar entreprenörerna sig inte som ett hot mot den svenska idrottsrörelsen.

    Reversal, normalization and self-care – three logics of countering body shame through fitness activities among young Danes

    This article by Carsten Stage and Stinne Bach Nielsen explores the relationship between body shame and fitness through interviews with 20 young Danes (age 15–24) who use a fitness centre at least twice a week as part of a process of self-defined bodily transformation. The analysis shows that body shame is a well-known feeling for a vast majority of the informants and that fitness is used by them to counter body shame in three ways that are analyzed in the article.
