Abstract

There is a tradition of athletes using their playing fields as a platform to advocate for change. This activism can refer to systematic changes required within sport itself or it can relate to the wider need for political and social justice. Sport has always believed that it is a significant arena of fairness and justice and of advancement for minorities and all disempowered people.
