Calling for a Time-Out: The Theology of Disability Sport and the Broader Understanding of Competition

The author seeks to interrogate technological trends in economic competition by means of theological reflection on the practices of disability sport, particularly the Special Olympics. He discusses the increasing influence of an algorithmic rationale that has been established in mainstream sport within wider society, especially in the economic sphere. The capturing of time is the critical connection between these sporting endeavors and the capitalist initiative. The author aims to demonstrate that a theological analysis of this phenomenon is enabled by placing the specific intentions and practices of Special Olympians at the center of our consideration.
