Australia: a Model of Egalitarian Sports Society?


Australia as a country is recognised as "athletic". Its successes in international competitions, as well as the fact that it regularly hosts important sports events, are evidence of that. In 2003, not only did Australia host the rugby World Cup, but the Wallabies1 made it to the final even though Rugby Union is a sport which can be described as minor within the national sports space.
