ABSTRACT

Since it is an indispensible relationship between sports and politics in China, policies related with sports are closely related with change of political situations of the nation. In addition, as sport systems around the central government are formed, they are operated around organizations and systems which are controlled by the central government. This paper is intended to analyze relationships between Beijing Olympic and development of Chinese nationalism under operation of national ideology of the Chinese government. Chinese nationalism is considered as a major factor for holding Beijing Olympic successfully and effect of Beijing Olympic on the development of Chinese nationalism is also analyzed. Especially it is examined how contents and characters of Chinese nationalism changed before and after a successful holding of Beijing Olympic. Even though Chinese nationalism is largely noted again thank to Beijing Olympic, it is not temporary phenomena but it lies on a consecutive line of nationalism which appeared due to confidence of the Chinese and in its response to the western world since the 1990s. A successful holding of Beijing Olympic strengthened both national confidence and cohesive power of the Chinese, and invoked emotion of a strong country which had been hidden in the history of China. The Chinese government utilized culture-nationalism to the maximum with a fundamental frame of state-nationalism. Consequently some change occurred in respect of contents and types of Chinese nationalism, and it acted as opportunity that the key point of Chinese nationalism is transformed from "How can we save China?" in the past to "How can China become as a leading country in the world?" at present. Both Beijing Olympic and Chinese nationalism have developed in the dialectical relationship.
