Sports (or sports) includes a wide variety of normally competitive physical activity that, through organised or casual participation, seek to use, develop or improve specific physical skill and/or ability while also providing entertainment for participants, and sometimes, spectators. Some sports are organised sports; that is, the games are governed by a particular code of conduct governed by a governing body such as the International Olympic Committee or the sport’s governing body. Other sports are non-organized sports; that is, most sports are generally open to anyone with the willingness to compete and the appropriate equipment to participate. The most common examples of these are American football, rugby, hockey, basketball, tennis, golf, softball and football.
Sports differ from each other in terms of purpose, types of activity, types of participants and the degree of physical exertion involved. Most sports can be divided further into two general categories. The sporting games are played between competing teams. The games can also include non-sport games that are played in arenas during non-sports events such as concerts, parades, fairs and outdoor events. The games that combine sportsmanship, gymnastics, weightlifting and sprinting are called athletic games. Sports competitions are also held to display the prowess of a sportsperson and to reward performance.
Sports competition are organized to test a player’s athletic strength, athletic aptitude, sportsmanship and skill and to show the world the best of a sportsman’s abilities. For example, in the Olympic Games, men and women with an average of at least 1% of each in the corresponding weight classes compete in the Olympic Games. This competition serves as an individual event with individual awards for each of the competing athletes and also individual medals with varying values to recognize the different winners.
Sports are an individual sport that requires a great deal of training and practice to develop mental toughness, agility, endurance, skill, physical dexterity, mental alertness, suppleness and strength. This ability to endure and perform under extreme physical duress is a key requirement to participate in any competitive game or event. Although some games such as tennis, golf, baseball, basketball and swimming require extensive training to excel at, these sports are considered to be low impact exercises which make them ideal for regular exercise as well.
