Contemporary society crisis has recently put into light male identity fragility - and it happens for the first time indeed. This process can be defined as a conscience trouble into self-constructing within complex societal structures: a difficulty that might reveal at the same time a socialising models inefficiency and a highly complex demand for change in Western societies. In this context gender-oriented identity formation might be at risk, constrained between uncertain parenthood roles and more broaden de-structuralising social processes. Within this context the body appears to become a relevant and distinctive element in a gender oriented perspective. In this respect sport, as one of its social expression, can be investigated as a privileged domain for male identity construction and expression process. The aim of this paper is to revel and analyse in-deep emerging conceptual connections and expressions between social change, body male identity and sport.
