2. Modern Abstract The late 19th century was a period of huge innovation and social change across a range of areas.

Drug taking, gender twisting, match fixing, playing to the referee, all of these issues have plagued modern sport for a century and a half, and none of them have gone away no matter how the purists objected and the rule book adapted. ‘Dark side’ considers the key issues that continue to affect sport: gender equality; sex and sexuality; institutional racism;
