The author discusses multi-vation - motivated for multiple reasons; mini-mization - not knowing the true value of sport and its transferability to other areas of life; and, maxi-citation - the product of multi-vation and mini-mization or being maximally excited in sport. (non-author abstract)
In sport, we give as much of ourselves as we choose, and we take away from the experience as much as we choose. From a sport psychology perspective, the 'great' athletes are the ones who have learned the perfect balance for themselves in this arena. So, while there are countless varieties of controversy in Sport, I'd like to focus on the more personal varieties. In other words, I'd like to take a look at the human controversies in sport: To give, or not to give.
