    Role models motivate young children to start a sport. This is particularly relevant with football and basketball, but also in lifestyle type activities like surfing. For instance, Michael Jordan was rated as the most recognised and admired sportsman in the 90s. This high level of recognition certainly encouraged a lot of teenagers (both boys and girls) to take up basketball. Both electronic and print media can generate role models.

    Role models Role models are also created by the media for young children. Role models motivate young children to start a sport. This is particularly relevant with football and basketball, but also in lifestyle type activities like surfing. For instance, Michael Jordan was rated as the most recognised and admired sportsman in the 90s. This high level of recognition certainly encouraged a lot of teenagers (both boys and girls) to take up basketball. Both electronic and print media can generate role models. The video market is responsible for strong recognition of role models in non mainstream sports, like surfing, which do not normally receive a lot of TV time. Many people know of surfers through the video market. The purchase of videos again emphasizes the way in which sporting activity has been made into a commodity. In fact, extreme or adventure type sports in remote or dangerous locations have become very popular. Examples of shows depicting these sports can be seen in the extreme games, the winter extreme games, the advertisements for Pepsi cola and many others.
