Towards a New Culture of Athletic Success?


In his fifth book published in 2015 (after Piasenta, 1988, 2001, 2006, 2011), coach Jacques Piasenta details his conceptualization of how to achieve success for both recreational and high performance sport contexts. Piasenta argues for an ‘athlete oriented’ instead of ‘performance oriented’ approach and considers the performance oriented viewpoint as “dehumanizing” (p. 8). Piasenta supports athletes striving for improved performances for internal personal reasons instead of external social factors. An approach that is congruent with typical definitions of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. The vision offered is the marathon runner happy to have finished the race regardless of time or place in the field.
