Sports refers to any form of physical activity undertaken for the purpose of leisure and fitness. In most cases, sports can be divided into two major categories: contact sports and non-contact sports. Many sports are organised sports; others are unorganised sports. The most popular sports in the United States include American football, baseball, basketball, cricket, ice hockey, soccer, track and field, and Australian rules rugby.
Sports is often broadly defined as any physical exertion, including athletics or gymnastics. Some forms of swimming, rugby, and lacrosse are considered sports. An athlete in a particular sport is often referred to as an athlete. Professional athletes continue to ply their trade in various sports throughout their career in order to support themselves and their family. In recent times, the term “professional sport” has become commonly used to describe activities outside of organized sports that require highly physical exertion.
In recent years, the term “sports journalism” has come into use, as a more generic description of a career in sports reporting. This career field combines sports reporting with other forms of media production to provide information about sports for the general public. The increased popularity of stream based online gaming, especially League of Legends, has made this field even more lucrative. By covering the live action of games via the internet, analysts and reporters have a unique position to offer fans information about games that they would otherwise not be able to get access to. By combining traditional forms of media with a variety of creative outlets, sports journalists are able to produce quality content that is tailored to the needs of the audience.
