Abstract: Due to the increasing number of examples in which the concept of creativity is related to sports contests, the aim of this paper is to critically examine the genealogy and some consequences of what means acting in a creative way during a sports performance. The analysis concerning the role of the definition with Heidegger’s explanation of the principle of identity provide sound contributes in order to understand what creativity is like. Rather than being conceived as sort of phenomenon having its several characteristics, it is more useful to acknowledge the unavoidable relevance of the recognition as the fundamental moment for a meaningful comprehension. As a result of this process, appearing creative in sport is a matter of twofold courses of recognition.
