According to C.L.R. James’s social theory on cricket and social movement, a paradox between sport and politics is presented. Sport used to contribute to, as well as ruin the politics. In China, Sport has been played a significant role for developing in many aspects, including politics. In this paper, the complex relationship between sport and politics is analysed and discussed from a historical perspective. In order to keep on constructing the positive impact from sport and politics, the position of both should be paid attention to. Meanwhile, it should be realised that sport is not the representatives of politics. Sport and politics influence each other rather than unrelated or absolute dependence relation.
