Miloš Marković Winning and fair play: attitudes of athletes about certain ethical issues

Even though ethics in physical culture (sport above all) is rarely spoken of in the sense of prevention, and much in the sense of consequences, athletes and sports employees recognize ’’immoral’’ moments of today’s sport very well. The issue of fair play is perhaps the central one when ethics of sport is at stake, so it will be given special attention in this lecture. The discussion will rely on an empirical research of attitudes among athletes and students of Belgrade’s Faculty of Sport and Physical Education about certain applied principles that would be suggested by differen philosophies of morality.
