Abstract:During the last thirty years, the pressure to isolate South Africa from international sport has steadily intensified. The South African response to the boycott has now developed into a full-scale international offensive aimed at 'setting the record straight' about the actual sporting conditions now prevailing in South Africa. This article, which is based on research undertaken in South Africa in 1984-85, critically evaluates the case made by the South African lobby. It focuses on the relationship between politics and sport at the school level. The evidence shows that, contrary to the claims of the 'sports-normalization' lobby, recent reforms have not changed the racist nature of school sport in South Africa either in its functions or in its content.
