Under the optics of american anthropologist Clifford Geertz, who treats the culture as a system of significant signs of which the individuals share, we tried to construct an interpretation of the above-mentioned profession, starting with authors and documents prominence in the sports field. We construct one brief reflection of the practical sportive as formation element of the culture, pointing a circular relation: sport is culture, as well as the culture defines the sport.
