Title:Perception of sport in Kenya
Author:Mählmann, P.ISNI
Periodical:Journal of Eastern African Research and Development
Geographic term:Kenya
Abstract:This study examines the attitude toward physical activity and sport among Kenyan male secondary school students. A sample from three schools in different parts of Kenya (Kisumu, Iten, Mombasa) was drawn and attitudes toward physical activities and sports were compared. The results indicate that Kenyan secondary school students have positive attitudes toward physical activities and sport on all scales investigated. Catharsis, social experience, and health and fitness figured highest in the esteem of the students. Ascetic experience received less esteem, while aesthetic experience and pursuit of vertigo received the least esteem. Different attitude profiles among the students were closely connected with socioeconomic (family, school, social class) and sociocultural background (tribal and religious affiliations).
