Introduction to the Definition and Description of Sports and Physical Fitness
Sports (or athletic sports) includes all types of regularly competitive physical activity that, through organised or casual participation, aim to employ, develop or maintain personal skill and/or physical ability, while giving participants, spectators and any other involved an opportunity to engage, occupy or experience some form of recreation. Some sports require the participant to wear protective equipment, such as a helmet; others may not. In addition, there are many different types of sports. In North America, most people think of American football as a game involving two teams that take turns catching and returning a football, generally with the winning team taking the home prize. However, the term can apply to a wide variety of games, including track and field, baseball, softball, soccer, hockey, rugby, boxing, gymnastics and swimming.
The Olympic Sportslavial, a part of the World Gymnastics Association, is the pre-competition, Olympic-style, competition organisation for the world’s most recognized and highest level sporting disciplines. Organised by the I athletics governing body, the W Olympics, the Olympic Sportslavial has been a driving force behind pushing the development of sporting principles, standards and laws since its inception back in 1988. This encompasses over 100 sports, including fencing, bowling, surfing, beach volleyball, track and field and rowing. While many of these sports are more directly associated with a specific sport, like baseball and swimming, they are included here as a framework for an understanding of what each discipline means and how it is regulated.
Competitive sports are generally divided into two sections, competitive and non-competitive. Non-competitive sports are those where participation is not determined by the outcome of a competition, but rather because of the nature or activity of the participants. It could be competition between two groups of people, or competition among members of a group. Examples of non-competitive sports include swimming, diving, gymnastics, tennis, table tennis and cheerleading.
Competitive sports, on the other hand, are those where the outcome of the competition is dependent on competitive outcomes. These can include boxing, tennis, softball, wrestling, golf, sailing, cycling and skiing. The term ‘fair competition’ is frequently used to describe competitions that are based on skill, merit, unfair advantage or simple chance. Competitions may also be organised by a country or organisations within a community such as the Olympics. The term fair competition is therefore used to describe any situation where participants are given equal opportunity to win, without the use of unfair practices which might give one team an unfair advantage or disadvantage.
The terms of level playing field and comparative level refer to situations where the participants are given the same ability and training in the main activity, but with different degrees of skill, ability or training. For example, if an athlete is competing against another player of the same level, such as someone who is twice their size, then their chances of winning will be lower. Similarly, an athlete who are highly skillful and experienced in a particular sport, but who competes against people of lower skill, for example someone who is a beginner, has a greater chance of winning. The concept of a level playing field was introduced to describe situations where the participant of a sports competition has an adequate opportunity to reach, and maintain, a higher level of performance than another participant.
In conclusion, the first and last paragraph briefly describe what each section needs to do in a comprehensive definition of sports and physical fitness. The second paragraph describes the various types of sports and physical fitness. A summary of what the rest of the article will contain, concerning sections, is included at the end of this article.
