    Abstract

    Racial stereotypes in sport remain largely unchallenged. It is often assumed that Black individuals are inherently superior in physical ability due to over-representation in some sports, such as sprinting. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate novice coaches’ use of Black stereotypes, using pictures of supposed sprinters. It was hypothesised that the success of White individuals would be attributed to hard work/socio-economic factors, whereas, the success of Black individuals would be attributed to innate genetic factors.
