First paragraph: The history of modern sport has been one of movement from local to regional, national and then global contexts. Colonialism has been a driving force behind the dissemination of modern sport around the world, reflecting and reinforcing the political, economic and cultural dynamics of liberal and neo-liberal imperialism. The evolution of modern sport encompasses a complex intersection of these colonial histories, including their oppressions and exploitations, and changing social norms on race, gender, religion, ethnicity, sexuality, disability and more.
