Le sport, un espace officiel pour faire l’expérience de la douleur à l’adolescence : Courir pour devenir soi parmi les autres en se faisant mal

Abstract : Mentioning adolescence will often evoke negative representations. Indeed, crises, violence, marginal behaviours, denial of authority are always associated with this period of life. Teenagers build up their (new) identity as they mourn their childhood. Nevertheless, they are not all having borderline behaviours. In order to get out of this in-betweenness, they are not all seeking themselves in a deviant or delinquent way. In fact, they all certainly want to feel and to prove to themselves that life is worth living. And because humanity is above all a matter of body, lots of them seek themselves using their senses and feelings. Some of them may do it through risky activities (margin), such as dangerous driving or drug abuse. Yet, others find enough feelings in more conventional activities (center), among which sport has a prominent place. In the margins as well as in the center, the aim is the same: consciously and collectively hurting the body to become oneself. This thesis reports how running, especially through trainings, can be one of the spaces where teenagers experience pain. This way, they build up their identity. The results of this PHD bring to the fore these individuals who are using sports pain to live a smooth transition from adolescence to adulthood.
