Biographies et carrières plurielles : analyses des interactions entre la carrière sportive des nageurs et les autres domaines de la vie sociale

Abstract : The objective of this thesis is to study the place of a sports career alongside the obligations of life from a biographical perspective. The records of the French Swimming Federation has allowed us firstly to show the influence of age and gender on the abandonment of sport during the first years of participation. Sport has to become a long-term habit before it becomes a career. Secondly, a biographical study of competitive swimmers has allowed us to demonstrate that the place held by sport evolves through a lifetime. Educational problems have little impact on the sports career. However, the sports career is destabilised by changes in life during higher education. The position which sport takes after this step is independent of the involvement of the swimmer. It is rather the manner in which the swimmer adapts to his new situation as a student in conjunction with the chosen field that determines the subsequent developments in his student life, sports life and professional life.
