   schema:description "The book draws on extensive research conducted by the authors and based on the views of more than 6,000 young people across the UK. The survey and follow-up interviews asked young people to reflect on their experiences of sport as children. It reports in detail their positive and negative experiences of sport participation in the UK, and provides information about the range of harms faced by children in these settings. This includes disrespectful and bullying treatment, body image issues, issues of self-esteem and self-confidence, physical abuse and child sexual abuse. --Book Jacket."@en ;
