Article title

Situational and Personal Determinants of Corruption in Sport



Title variants

Languages of publication



Maximization of action, social acceptance, long-lasting training, competition, and motor activity are usually mentioned among situational dimensions. Taking into account that all human actions, inclusive of the corruptive ones, have their psycho-social aspect and, according to the paradigm of interactive psychology, belong at the same time to the social and psychological reality, it might be expected that the dimensions of a competitive sport situation may be significantly decisive to the manner of formulation and realization of sport goals. In conclusions of the research the author presents that the level of inclination to corruption is significantly differentiated among particular sports and disciplines. Among the basic individual features of sports people that might promote corruptive behaviour one may mention the need of success, the desire for easy life and a fear of sports and life defeats. Any attempts of an efficient diagnosis and prevention of the phenomenon of corruption in sport besides penalization should be made with consideration of psycho-social aspects.
