A Competitive Nature?
Sports (or physical sports) is any types of usually strenuous physical activity that, through organised or casual participation, attempt to utilize, hone or develop certain physical skill and ability while also providing physical entertainment to competitors, and sometimes, spectators. It can also be used to refer to a specific sport, such as swimming, skiing, tennis, golf and basketball. These activities often require strenuous work and training, especially during the early stages of training, to enable participants to meet the challenges presented. With the advent of various sports competitions around the world and recognition of its sportsmanship, sports have become quite popular, especially in countries where athletic competition is not popular or accepted.
A good example of an individual sport that is popular around the world is ice hockey, which is a very popular competitive nature physical activity. Ice hockey is most famous for its solid, fast paced action that can be seen all over the world, in different game leagues and arenas. The physical strain it causes not only makes the players strong and agile, but also provides a great deal of mental stress and pressure to the competitor.
Sports are categorized into two main categories: organized sports and more diffuse sports. Organized sports involve organized teams and competitions, and the rules and objectives of the game are well defined and recognized. As for the less formal type of sports, such as athletics, there is a loose framework to define rules, but the purpose of the activity itself may be to do with a contest or show, with no clear-cut participants and goals. As with any type of physical activity, sports are best done with a good level of physical conditioning, and even more so when it comes to being able to concentrate on the activity without feeling tired, or at risk of getting injured. In short, sports that require prolonged physical exertion or a competitive nature are more demanding than non-competitive sports.
