There is something sublimely beautiful in the way the human body moves which is often played out in sport. Something about the humdrum splendour of each ‘grand action’, like a workaday form of ballet: the golfer leaning sideways into his swing and then winding up to the finish, his trunk twirled and elbows held high. Or the swimmer carving a furrow through the water, his body rolling languidly behind
as his legs make their slow-motion, thin scissors kick.
I wonder too, whether some sporting actions affect us because they strike a deeper chord, echoing some long past function in our primitive memory; actions innate but mostly forgotten. The spread-eagled star shape of the javelin thrower, at the point of letting it fly. Or the horse and its rider, both flattened out at the gallop or, better still, the curling bursting thrust of a spine unravelling backwards as the rower pulls his scull across the water.
