National Identity and Athletes? Success Pride Internationally- A Review

Danica Pirsl, Amela Lukac-Zoranic

Grounded in social-identity and self-categorization theories and drawing on data gathered in the US General Social Survey (N = 2528) ; this research examines how demographic and media use measures associate with national pride; as experienced through the success of US athletes competing internationally. Bivariate tests and analysis of covariance models indicated greater levels of national pride among black males; older respondents; those who classified themselves as republicans and those with lower levels of formal education. Exposure to newspapers and television did not prove statistically significant in multivariate analyses; although bivariate tests revealed that those exposed most frequently to television tended to agree in significantly higher numbers with the statement When my country does well in international sports; it makes me proud to be an American. Review and some comparisons to domestic athletes pride taking as well as limitations and recommendations for future research are offered.
