The Concept and Nature of Sports Responsibility

2021. No. 2. P. 161–176 [issue contents]
The article explores the concept of sports responsibility and its legal nature. The polemicof the views of a number of scientists on the definition of the concept of legal liability isgiven. The author concludes that legal liability is a legal relationship arising from the fact ofan offense between the offender, the victim and the state, in which the offender’s duty toundergo the adverse legal consequences of their illegal actions corresponds, firstly, to thestate’s obligation to apply state coercive measures to it, and secondly, the right of the victimto demand that the state bring the offender to legal liability and redress. This approach tounderstanding legal responsibility should serve as a methodological basis for consideringthe concept of sports responsibility and allows a more focused study of its content. It isproved that sports responsibility is an independent type of legal responsibility, which is alegal relationship arising from the fact of violation of sports norms and rules adopted bythe law by an individual (athlete) or sports organization recognizing such norms, and thecontent of which is the obligation the subject of physical culture and sports who violated thesporting norm to undergo adverse consequences provided for by the sanction of sportsstandards, and enshrined in law the right of the All-Russian sport federation apply to theoffender provided sport rules coercion. The characteristic features of sports (sports andlegal) responsibility that distinguish it from other types of legal responsibility are: Featuresof the subject of sports responsibility, which consists in the fact that a person recognizing the sports norm is subject to bringing to sports responsibility; features of the coercivemeasures applied, which consist in the fact that coercive measures against the offenderare established and applied by a non-governmental organization (the All-Russian SportsFederation) with the direct authorization of the state, fixed by federal law. These featuresdetermine the main specificity of sports (sports and legal) responsibility. This specificityconsists in the fact that, being a legal responsibility, sports responsibility carries some(residual) signs of public responsibility.
