PDF Is a handful of gold medals once every four years worth u100m? Elite Sports Development addresses important questions in contemporary sports development, providing detailed analysis of the emergence and current status of elite sport policy and practice in the UK, Australia and Canada. The authors consider the problems faced by governments and national governing bodies in establishing a successful elite sport infrastructure and examine in detail the particular issues associated with provision of facilities, coaching, sports science and competition. The lives and needs of full-time athletes are studied and tensions generated by competition for resources between elite sport, schools and community provision are explored. Includes discussion of: why do governments invest heavily in elite sport? what are the relationships between Government and NGB's? how does elite sport investment impact on 'sport for all'? how are individual sports selected for priority funding Elite Sports Development will be of interest to students, researchers and professionals working in sports development and policy.
