Edited Collection--On the DL: Athletes, Athletics, and Disability, July 31, 2016

full name / name of organization: 
Joseph P. Fisher
contact email: 
fishdog@gwu.edu

Popular rhetoric about athletics consistently emphasizes corporeal mastery and bodily perfection. Always exhibiting physical and mental toughness, athletes train ceaselessly to reach the pinnacle of sporting accomplishment: taking things to the next level. In fact, there is a good argument to be made that athletic excellence requires superhuman skill, for it is only when athletes devote 110% of themselves to their sports that victory can be achieved.

Yet, despite their apparent otherworldly physical strength and endurance, athletes constantly inhabit positions of disability. Whether experiencing performance interruptions due to “overuse” injuries or bearing the brunt of permanently disabling violence—concussions, spinal cord damage, any number of musculoskeletal traumas—athletes are defined by disability just as much as they are defined against it.
