Self‐presentation typically involves the selective presentation of particular self‐relevant information and the selective nondisclosure of other information, rather than attempts to convey false images. This chapter discusses self‐presentation in sport and exercise, with a particular focus on motivation for self‐presentation in these settings. It charts the history of conceptual and empirical work on self‐presentation in sport and exercise. The 2 × 2 self‐presentation motivation framework, which is a contemporary framework on self‐presentation motivation in physical activity, is overviewed alongside a discussion of research on this framework. The chapter discusses self‐presentation motivation with reference to perhaps the most ubiquitous theory in sport and exercise psychology at present—that of Self‐Determination Theory. It deals with practical implications from research on self‐presentation in sport and exercise, together with recommendations for future research on self‐presentation processes in these contexts.
