The modern legitimization of sport has relied upon a number of moral and functional premises. The Olympic movement and Olympic sport have, since Coubertin, referred to moral and universal forms of legitimization. On the other hand, the actual practice of the Olympic organization has continually involved political compromises, bureaucratic misuse and, fundamental questions of its ideological foundation and practice. The phenomena that point to a change in Olympic sports are often stated in a number of critiques. The essence of the historico-sociological critique is in a relativization of the claims of Olympic ideology and the past and present practice of the Olympic Games. The ethics of modern sport are rooted in modern ideals of fairness, impartiality and the integrity of the body. This creates a universalist form of sport morality similar to other modernist forms of ethics. The aesthetics of sport are fundamentally connected with the individual event and the singularity of the individual event.
