This essay puts sports journalism in focus. The aim has been to find out how elite and amateur sports were represented in Swedish newspapers such as Sundsvalls Tidning, Nerikes Allehanda and Helsingborgs Dagblad. The most important questions in this essay are; how many articles are written about these two sports categories and which role got quoted in the two sports categories? The essay is based on theories about representation, ideology, identity, power and capital and newsworthy and comer-cialization. The aim was to examine how our result could affect media consumers. The study is based on a quantitative content analysis. Overall, all articles in the sports pages reviewed over four selected weeks spread over all seasons, that is one week per season. The results show that elite sport dominated sports columns. The study shows that different roles got quoted in the different sports categories that can complicate the identification process in the society.
