Perhaps the most feminized sport in all modern athletics, figure skating receives primacy within any American Winter Olympic telecast?with all of the gendered language that comes with that featured status. This study revealed 13 significantly different dialogue trends between male figure skaters and the aggregate of other male Winter Olympians. Such a high number of differences highlight the convoluted role of perceived masculinity in sport, with male figure skaters as mediated outliers within the overall composite of Olympic dialogue.
This article highlights sport broadcasting as an emergent battlefield of ?globalization from above and below? based on analysis of the strained relationship between Al-Jazeera Sport (AJS) and sports fans in Middle East and North Africa (MENA) over subscription fees to the 2010 and 2014 World Cup games. The article illustrates how sports globalization weakened national broadcasters? bidding power and allowed corporations to turn the World Cup from a free to high-fee event, leaving angry citizens from the MENA region to fend for themselves. A survey of online media illustrates how these angry citizens shared tactics to resist these fees.
The death of television has been long predicated in the digital age, yet it remains a powerful mediator of live sports. This article focuses on football and examines the implications for the sport of the move to an age of screens and content. These may be large screens in public places or in our homes or those at work or smaller screens carried in the palm of our hands, but what we use them for, how content gets onto those screens, and the implications for sports and sports fans remain compelling questions in the digital age. The article argues that through reflecting on major media sport events such as the FIFA World Cup, we see patterns of continuity in the role played by television as well as evidence of change.
All sixty-nine hours of National Broadcasting Company?s (NBC) 2012 primetime Summer Olympic telecast were analyzed, revealing significant gender trends. For the first time in any scholarly study of NBC?s coverage of the games, women athletes received the majority of the clock-time and on-air mentions. However, dialogues surrounding the attributions of success and failure of athletes, as well as depictions of physicality and personality, contained some divergences by gender.
This study represents an analysis of eight games from National Broadcasting Company?s broadcast of the 2010 Olympic ice hockey coverage. Since ice hockey is a sport considered to be ?masculine,? the study is ground in hegemonic masculinity. The visual production techniques were analyzed using Zettl?s applied media aesthetics approach to analyze camera shots, angles, motion, and replays. Results show the women?s games to be more visually exciting through the use of camera shots, angles, and slow-motion replay effects. These findings, a departure from previous research, still reinforce notions of hegemonic masculinity, portraying women?s ice hockey as the ?inferior? event.
The World Rally Championship (WRC) is an international event, staged in 12 different countries and attracting up to 225,000 spectators in some of its European stages. However, while WRC events provide opportunities for destinations around the world, there is a lack of empirical research on the impacts of these events on host communities, or their contribution to tourism. The purpose of this article is to provide a case study of the WRC stages held in Australia in 2009 and 2011. The study examines the event in terms of its perceived tourism value, its promotional value and the resultant opportunities for local business within the context of regional tourism in Australia. Issues for measuring the media value of events are discussed in relation to the two WRC events, along with implications for maximising local business and media opportunities. The analysis in this study has shown that the WRC does have the capacity to attract visitors, provide opportunities for local business and generate international media attention, but there are limits and restrictions to the efficacy of these outcomes.
This book examines the political debates over the access to live telecasts of sport in the digital broadcasting era. It outlines the broad theoretical debates, political positions and policy calculations over the provision of live, free-to-air telecasts of sport as a right of cultural citizenship. In so doing, the book provides a number of comparative case studies that explore these debates and issues in various global spaces.
In December 2010, Dakar hosted the Troisime Festival Mondial des Arts Ngres (FESMAN), which took for its main theme the notion of an ?African Renaissance?. FESMAN sought to revive a highly utopian pan-Africanism that had been prevalent in the era of decolonisation from the 1950s to the 1970s, but it departed in significant ways from many of the ideas and values that had marked previous pan-African cultural festivals: FESMAN celebrated popular culture and extended its definition to include sport in various manifestations. The aim of this article is to trace the connections that were drawn by festival organisers and the media between sport and the wider artistic, cultural and identitarian agendas at work in the festival. It will also ask what these tell us about the evolution in the understanding of culture and identity in the 44 years between the 1966 and the 2010 festivals.
From its origins in the later nineteenth century, French rugby has been an important site for the construction of a variety of masculine, class-based, regional and national identities. The game?s rise coincided with that of the popular press, and also with the emergence of specialised sporting publications at both the local and national levels. With a significant head-start on association football, particularly in the south-west of the country, rugby became associated with the defence of regional pride and local interests. This was a process invested in both morally and materially by newspapers and radio. With the advent of television, rugby was variously appropriated by national broadcasters and Gaullist politicians, who exploited its regional credentials at a time of rapid societal change. Since the game?s professionalisation in 1995, and its resulting ?glocalisation?, media-aware rugby entrepreneurs have sought new sporting and commercial strategies, which have ranged from provincial nostalgia to pragmatic cosmopolitanism.
This study represents a content analysis of 10 beach volleyball games for the men?s and women?s team USA during the 2008 Summer Games. Play-by-play commentary and between-play commentary were analyzed for all 10 games, and all court shots and camera angles were coded. Using earlier work examining the existence or presence of gender inequities in mediated coverage of sport in general, the goal was to identify how or if coverage of beach volleyball might still reinforce gender inequities. Findings from the coded visual and verbal coverage suggest that gender difference was not evident in the manifest content of the 2008 Olympic Games. Additional findings and implications are discussed.
