  • Descrição: In this article I use oral and documentary evidence gathered during recent fieldwork and archival research in the UK and Kenya to explore the ways in which the Church of Scotland Mission to Kenya attempted to use sport to “civilize” and “discipline” the people of Central Kenya. I make a case for the important contributions the topic of sport can make to the study of African and colonial history, and offer a comprehensive critique of the only book-length work which explores the history of sport in colonial Kenya, John Bale and Joe Sang’s Kenyan Running (1996). ; Dans cet article, j’utilise des entretiens et des documents collectés pendant ma recherche de terrain et mon travail aux archives au Royaume-Uni et au Kenya afin d’explorer la façon dont la Mission de l’Église d’Écosse au Kenya a tenté d’employer le sport pour “civiliser” et “discipliner” les habitants du Kenya central. Je soutiens que le sport en tant qu’objet peut servir à étudier l’histoire africaine et coloniale et offrir une critique exhaustive du seul livre qui explore l’histoire du sport dans le Kenya colonial: John Bale et Joe Sang, Kenyan Running (1996).
