Interesting Facts About Sports
Sports refers to any sort of physical activity undertaken for the purpose of improving or enriching one’s well being, whether it’s for recreational purposes or seriously competitive purposes. It’s usually associated with contact sports like contact soccer, rugby, ice hockey, Australian rules football or American football. In the US, the term sports is broadly defined as a physical activity deliberately conducted for the purpose of exercising, competing, or engaging in any other physical activity in which game is played in an organized competition. Most sports are usually regulated by professional sport organizations, most notably the National Soccer Hall of Fame and the National Basketball Association.
Sports can be broadly categorized into three categories: amateur athletics, professionally organized sports and motor sports. Amateur athletics refers to any contact sport such as cricket, soccer, American football, rugby and skiing. Professionalized sports refer to any sport in which there is an association between the sport itself and a governing body, most frequently the Association Football League (afa) and its European soccer body, the European Federation of Association Football (Federation of International Football Associations) or the European Rugby Cup. These associations provide guidelines for the type of dress code that players are expected to follow, the type of playing surface and other such regulations. Many countries also have their own association football and other sports governing bodies.
One of the most common features of sports is extreme physical strength and skill, especially during the beginning stages of a competition. Athletes train extensively to develop their athletic skills, and some sports require great stamina and endurance, which make them far more capable of pushing themselves to the limits and beyond. In games that do not require extreme physical strength, endurance or skills, the winner simply has to get the most points. Some popular examples of games that require high levels of athleticism and agility include chess, horse jumping, tennis and golf. Some famous athletes who excel in sports that require great dexterity and speed include Usain Bolt, sprinting track star sprinter Jamaican runner sprinter Usain Bolt, NBA center Dwayne Wade, tennis star Serena Williams and football player Aaron Rodgers.
