No pain, no gain? The sociology of sports


Join researcher William Bridel for this fascinating webinar examining how cultural norms impact the way pain and injury are experienced and (not) talked about in sport. William will include findings from the latest academic studies, including his own research on “weekend warriors” and endurance challenge athletes.

With examples drawn from a range of sports such as men’s professional rugby, women’s varsity rowing, marathons and triathlons, you’ll discover the often ironic intersections between pain, injury, and health.
