Sports, Or the Lack thereof, is Worse Than Ever
Sports are physical, competitive games played by humans for the purpose of the entertainment of others and themselves. There are several different types of sports to choose from. They can be played alone against an opponent (an individual sporting contest), or as a part of a group sport (e.g. baseball, basketball, football).
A sport can be described as any kind of physical activity undertaken with a view to the development of the participant’s power, skill, fitness, endurance or mental condition. There is now much debate on whether there really is a need to have a sport separate from the Olympic Games and the World Games. Some sports such as cycling, gymnastics, diving, and swimming are generally accepted as taking part in a sport only when participating in an Olympic event. This is in contrast with other sports where the rules are the same for both the Olympic and third country games.
In terms of Olympic sports, there is now a separate Olympic Committee for each sports discipline. These committees are made up of members of the relevant sporting discipline and are responsible for ensuring that the spirit of the sport is upheld and that the spirit of fair play is demonstrated throughout the events. Most governing bodies for other disciplines, however, allow sportsmen and women to participate in the Olympic Games without any governing body. This is especially the case with some contact sports such as wrestling and boxing, where there is very little regulation or legal regulation. It is this lack of governmental regulation that has allowed people from all walks of life to take part in the sport of their choice and build up an incredible collection of sports memorabilia.
In terms of third countries, they are required to organise and qualify a series of athletic events for their athletes each year in order to participate in the Olympic Games. These events are designed to be both physically and mentally stimulating for the athletes in order to ensure that they are in peak physical condition to compete at an optimum level. In recent times as well as maintaining competitive advantage through the use of nutritional supplements, certain athletes have begun to turn to football to keep in fine condition both physically and mentally throughout their sport of choice.
There is also the junior’s section, which was traditionally designed for the less physically able children to give them a fighting chance in the Olympic Games. Today, the juniors section is not as large and some teams have even chosen not to have a separate section. Some sports organizations feel that this has led to a decrease in the standard of play and an increase in the amount of physical activity amongst the kids playing the sport. Whatever the case may be, the spirit of the game has been maintained and the Olympic spirit has spread across the planet. Sport, as a whole, is a unisex sport where both men and women can participate in it at any point in time.
Rugby is the only sport in the world that makes use of all its members in their quest to win a game. In the process, rugby players are challenged both mentally and physically by a never-ending array of training exercises and rigorous physical drills. If one were to compare rugby with other major sports like football and baseball one would clearly see the immense physical demands placed upon the players. The physiological advantages of rugby, which have led to a huge spike in the number of young people enrolling in the sport’s national and international associations, cannot be underestimated. It is no surprise that the game is enjoying unprecedented levels of popularity amongst young people in every country in the world.
