All things are seen as interdependent and inseparable parts of this cosmic whole; as different manifestations of the same ultimate reality. (Capra, The Tao of Physics) Understanding our connection to the universe is a beautiful and profound spiritual experience - understanding this through reason and the sciences simply confirms this previously intuitive / mystical knowledge (which many people have experienced). In other cases (see Lumpkin, Beller and Stoll, 1999) philosophers have simply assumed a deontological framework and applied to it to good effect without necessarily interrogating the theoretical basis upon which their sports ethics is based.
