Haveyou ever thought why people do sports? Absolutely, many people seem not to knowthe reasons.
As a anecdote, there are many people who do sports for nothingaround us. Every day we can encounter with these people. They regularly dosports; however, none of them realizes the benefits and importance of sports.In fact, vice versa, some people want to be fit and attractive, look smart.Unfortunately, these people can’t consider other benefits of sports. In myopinion, there are several benefits of sports that people often do notconsider: sports are required to be healthy people, are needed for enjoyment,and are great market for countries’ economies.Sports we can say that theyhave a sense of psychological and emotional bearing on participants, an aspectthat can make up the third paragraph.
Every sport or game has its rules. It isincumbent on the participants to follow the laid down rules, hence it fostersdiscipline and obedience. These are two aspects that are highly applicable ineveryday practical life. It is necessary for the student to note that there arealways winners and losers in sports and games.
When one has won, it emboldensthe participant and creates a sense of pride to the winner. The loser, however,learns to accept defeat and encouraged not to give up, but rather to trainharder and aim for a victory next time. Accepting both victory/success anddefeat is a key lesson that human beings must have for them to live well in thesociety. Therefore, it leads to the formation of positive characters,especially among youth, thereby inculcating a sense of good values in them. The first advantage ofsports for people is that they help people be healthy, and be fit. Throughouthistory, people can’t give up their interest at their body. Naturally, people’sfirst aim should be healthy and fit with the benefits of sports.
Due to thisfact that Sports keep our body healthy. As a possible example, imagine thatthere is a car which has not worked for years. If you try to run the motorengine, it will not work anymore since it has been rusted and its engine may bebroken down. As a result, people is similar to engines and motors.
If we don’tdo sports, we will be forced to rust, in other words, decomposition of ourbody; afterwards, we may have some problems with our body when we even need tosmall walk. In addition, sports balance our body’s blood pressure andcirculation. According to many researchs which have been done by scientists, wecan prove the importance of sports for our health because 70% middle agedpeople who did not do sports in their youth are now struggling with theproblems such as high tension, trouble with blood circulation, Heart disease, easilybecome tired due to the lack of sports. The Report from theUnited Nations Inter-Agency Task Force on Sport for Development and Peacestates that young people can benefit from physical activity as it contributesto developing healthy bones, efficient heart and lung function as well asimproved motor skills and cognitive function. Physical activity can help toprevent hip fractures among women and reduce the effects of osteoporosis.Remaining physically active can enhance functional capacity among older people,and can help to maintain quality of life and independence.
The second advantage ofsports for people is that they are required for our daily lives and competingat the international area because of enjoyment of sports. For many years,sports have been done by people. For example, have you ever thought why peoplewant to play football or other games? The answer may be easy since sports areentertaining. They are sometimes magic as they catch our attention and give uspleasure as much as we need. Sometimes overwhelming life conditions may beunfair and make us unhappy. However, if there is a sport activity when we areunhappy, we will probably be motivated and be refreshed again after the sportactivity. This should be the most important benefit of sports because manypeople do sports for this reason.
In addition, have you ever thought whymillions of people watch World Cup match without breathing? There might be somereasons behind the action of watching football match. The most important onemight be the excitement and enjoyment of sport. Football match is breath takingbecause it gives us pleasure to watch. In the pitch and near the pitch, thereare more than 18 men, and they are the representative of our sport culture.Within the excitement of sports, countries are able to compete in theinternational area. Due to this fact people like sports since they and theircountries are able to compete and beat opponent countries and this is the mostimportant reason to take pleasure from sports. The final and leastadvantage of sports is that they are the huge market for countries’ economy.First of all, if we look at only football industry.
There are more thanthousand professional team and at least these team have 25 players. If this iscalculated, there are approximately 25,000 players without working staff,scouts, coaches and managers. This should be the largest industry which employsmany people in Turkey. In addition, countries and clubs have to establish newfacilities for sports game.
Some of them are the largest buildings in theentire country that represent countries, for example Ataturk Olympic Stadium inTurkey. Supplying funds for this buildings may be the publicity of countriessince constructing well designed stadiums help country prepare or organize big competitionssuch as World Cup, Olympics, and Tennis Tournaments. Finally, sports allowadvertisement companies to make publicity of strong brands. For example,sponsorship is one of the best publicity of one company. Everyone watches theirfavorite team or athlete, and audience will probably see the sponsor of team orathlete. For example, in England, Manchester United which is one of the mostpowerful clubs in international area has a sponsor called Vodafone. If you arefrom another you knew what’s sponsor it’s that. All in all, we canconclude that there are several advantages and benefits of sports and they haveimpact on social/ cultural, economic and health.
First, sports are required bypeople to be fit, smart, and good looking. Second, sports are entertaining dueto many facts. Third, sports are the huge market for countries’ economies. Inmy opinion, despite sports’ advantages, many people can’t believe that sports areuseful and beneficial. I hope that in the future these people will tend to bemore optimistically to sports since they are the necessity of our lives.
