Title: Die Rhetorik des Spitzensports [The Rhetoric of Top-Class Sport]
Written By: Johannes Heil
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/180513?format=G
Series Title: De Gruyter Rhetorik-Forschungen 20
Description:

It is only through communication that physical activity becomes sport. Sport as
a happening becomes a meaningful event through the interplay of dramaturgical
rules and rhetorical patterns. Working from this point of departure, this study
reveals how the sports report serves to realize the possibilities of sport. The
sports report tells the stories which are actually the reason why the sport exists
at all. Particularly in top-class sports communicated by mass media, this leads
to illuminating, amusing or moving dramas in the arena of physical and mental
achievement.
