The Golden Rule in sports: investing in the conditions of cooperation for a mutual advantage in sports competitions

  • Elite level sport lends itself to a highly competitive eironment that encourages players to seek a competitive advantage in order to win. Since competition is an inherent condition that is also considered desirable in this setting, it may at first glance seem as if cooperation does not have any room in elite level sports. Sustainable cooperation can be mutually advantageous for players, but it only has a chance of coming into fruition if it is also in line with individual players’ self-interests. In order for morality and self-interests to align with one another, iestment in the conditions is required. Alicia Bockel analyzes ways that players can iest in the conditions of sustainable cooperation for a mutual advantage despite a highly competitive sports eironment.
