Abstract:
      In this dissertation, the author analyses his own and other men´s body experiences in sport. This research derives from a phenomenological framework with additional links to the sociology of the body, life history, men´s studies, autobiography and narrative studies. Through this analysis the author reflects on various changes within the social history of Finnish sport over the last decades. To achieve this, the author utilises a narrative and narrated approach to study men´s sporting experiences. (A longer abstract is attached.)
