Resumen

Debido la globalización y de los necesarios procesos de adaptación personal, cultural y contextual que conlleva la transición de una cultura a otra, hemos asistido recientemente a un creciente interés en la investigación sobre la movilidad de los deportistas (ver Ryba, Haapanen, Mosek & Kwok, 2012). Aunque, por una parte, estos estudios han proporcionado un valioso conocimiento de los retos que han de afrontar los deportistas profesionales en su transición de una cultura a otra, por otra, se ha prestado poca atención a la experiencia de los deportistas que no profesionales y/o que no son de élite. Para compensar este vacío, el presente artículo se centra en los resultados de un estudio de las experiencias de jugadores de rugby que no eran de élite, provenientes de las islas Fiyi, que, siendo adolescentes, se trasladaron a Nueva Zelanda a la búsqueda de sus sueños en el rugby.
