Résumé
After a relatively normal childhood, people suffering from cystic fibrosis reach a stage where they are progressively confronted with increasingly crippling functional limitations. Some of them nonetheless regularly undertake physical and/or sporting activity. It is then interesting to examine the process of commitment to a practice that is based on the idea of progress and often exceptional performance by the body but which, for these people, makes the decline of their physical capacities particularly salient. The qualitative survey combines participant observation with 35 semi-directive interviews with sportsmen and women with cystic fibrosis. Their commitment to sport, constructed by/with the family is initially first aimed maintaining a form of control over their identity but progressively becomes a means of controlling the illness trajectory. Lung transplant, when possible, relaunches the practice in relation to its initial interests.
