Sport is a major area of human interest and activity. A large part
of our leisure, and newspaper and TV time is given over to it.
approach to defining "sport" is to look at the common
usage of the term.
A sport can
be operationally defined as an activity characteristically involving
of a useful physical skill recreationally, i.e. for a purpose other
than its practical application in daily life.
Conforming to a set of rules for the activity while aiming to attain
The excellence referred to above may be measured against previous
benchmarks, time measurements, performance of the other team or
participants, world records, etc..
skills which have become sports:
Rome fought and killed for the delectation of the audience, rather
than to protect the Empire:
Yachting is the travel across water for enjoyment or competition
rather than e.g. for transport or commerce:
Running is done on a course for a fixed length of time or distance,
rather than simply to catch a bus.
Physical sports use characteristics such as strength, stamina, speed,
dexterity and other skills, other sports use more cerebral skills
(see mind sport), such as strategic thinking in chess. This article,
however, will concentrate on physical aspects of sport.
The line between
sports, games, exercise and play is certainly not clear; games are
often redefined as sports when they involve particularly skilled
participants, which gives them appeal to non-participants. This
is especially true in the modern age, which gives much weight to
the spectator aspect of sports. Similarly, play is usually understood
as less purposeful activity, but can become more like a game or
sport as it conforms more to external rules or patterns of behaviour.
Exercise is action to develop skill or ability, and may be a forerunner
of both sport and games.
