dc.description.abstract"The purpose of this study was to conduct an investigation of the lived experiences of asthma and sporting embodiment in non-elite sportspeople of different ages and levels of ability, involved in a range of sports. Despite the prevalence of asthma and exercise-induced asthma/bronchoconstriction, there is a distinct lacuna in terms of qualitative research into living with asthma, and specifically in relation to sports participation. The salient themes that were identified through a narrative analysis from this study are portrayed relating to (i) restoring health; (ii) fighting asthma; and (iii) integrating asthma. These themes aim to enhance our understanding of the way sportspeople experience living with asthma through a narrative lens. By this means this paper aims to contribute to, and take forward the literature of sporting embodiment in two key areas: (i) narratives of asthma and sporting embodiment; (ii) qualitative studies of chronic illness experiences in sport.en
