Sports stories make for good television, but there can be some problems with interpretation. If you’ve ever watched a major sports championship game, you’ll notice that the players and coaches and even the spectators are cheering or crying, depending on which team is playing. The reason behind this is that most people root for one thing–the winner! That means when someone wins a game, everyone wants to celebrate that person because they have been fans of that person throughout their lives.
A sports film is a fictional film genre which makes use of sports as the central theme of the story. It’s a fictional production in which an athlete, sporting event, player, or fan of a specific sport are heavily involved, and that depend solely on sports for their resolution or motivation. This genre falls under the larger umbrella of action/adventure television, but it takes its influence from sports, particularly professional sports such as baseball, basketball, football, golf, hockey, tennis, swimming, and the like.
The definition of a sport can change depending on who you talk to. According to the Collins dictionary, a sport is “a set of athletic activities requiring the application of physical exertion.” They further define it as “an accepted method of conducting a set of physical exercises or practices that is directed at increasing the ability of the body or mind.” The definition is broad enough, so in most dictionaries, a game of golf would be considered a sport. However, the same could be said for swimming, gymnastics, or any other sport where the interaction of both the mind and the body is required. So you can have a game of bowling, but if it is focused purely on the bowler and does not involve physical contact with a ball, then it wouldn’t be called a bowling game.
There are many different definitions for sports. The ultimate definition of a sport is “any form of competitive physical activity engaged in by people for the purpose of exercising physical strength, exerting mental or social skill, or obtaining competitive advantage.” Other sports also fit under this broad definition, including canoeing, skiing, cycling, fencing, karate, figure skating, swimming, wrestling, basketball, football, track and field, and track and field fencing. International sports competition includes such countries as the United States, Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, Brazil, Russia, Spain, Italy, China, India, South Africa, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, and Vietnam. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) defines Olympic Sports as “the body athletic competitions pursued by men and women of the various disciplines at the Olympic Games” (Olympics). This, however, has caused some problems when teams from other countries are ineligible to compete for the gold, silver, and bronze medals because the Olympic committee determines each country’s level of participation based on the respective sports of that country.
Most people agree that sports involve some degree of physical prowess. Therefore, any athlete or participant who desires to improve his/her athletic prowess must give more attention to sports that require physical prowess. But how can an average individual improve their physical prowess? Is there an ideal way to train or how can one develop a specialized plan? Well, to answer both questions, no one can answer them as the sole solution.
Every person has a unique body make-up and some people have bodies that are naturally gifted with athletic activities while some have physical activities that their bodies can’t take up. No matter what your physical capabilities are, you need to devote yourself to a specific sport in order to excel in it. If you want to be in the best shape, the best thing to do is to choose a sport that will fit your endurance and body building needs. As said earlier, this comes down to your personal definition of a sports’sport’. But whatever it is, stick with it to achieve your goal.
