you ever thought why people do sports? Absolutely, many people seem not to know
the reasons. As a anecdote, there are many people who do sports for nothing
around us. Every day we can encounter with these people. They regularly do
sports; 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 my
opinion, there are several benefits of sports that people often do not
consider: sports are required to be healthy people, are needed for enjoyment,
and are great market for countries’ economies.
Sports we can say that they
have a sense of psychological and emotional bearing on participants, an aspect
that can make up the third paragraph. Every sport or game has its rules. It is
incumbent on the participants to follow the laid down rules, hence it fosters
discipline and obedience. These are two aspects that are highly applicable in
everyday practical life. It is necessary for the student to note that there are
always winners and losers in sports and games. When one has won, it emboldens
the 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 train
harder and aim for a victory next time. Accepting both victory/success and
defeat is a key lesson that human beings must have for them to live well in the
society. Therefore, it leads to the formation of positive characters,
especially among youth, thereby inculcating a sense of good values in them.
The first advantage of
sports for people is that they help people be healthy, and be fit. Throughout
history, people can’t give up their interest at their body. Naturally, people’s
first aim should be healthy and fit with the benefits of sports. Due to this
fact that Sports keep our body healthy. As a possible example, imagine that
there is a car which has not worked for years. If you try to run the motor
engine, it will not work anymore since it has been rusted and its engine may be
broken down. As a result, people is similar to engines and motors. If we don’t
do sports, we will be forced to rust, in other words, decomposition of our
body; afterwards, we may have some problems with our body when we even need to
small walk. In addition, sports balance our body’s blood pressure and
circulation. According to many researchs which have been done by scientists, we
can prove the importance of sports for our health because 70% middle aged
people who did not do sports in their youth are now struggling with the
problems such as high tension, trouble with blood circulation, Heart disease, easily
become tired due to the lack of sports. The Report from the
United Nations Inter-Agency Task Force on Sport for Development and Peace
states that young people can benefit from physical activity as it contributes
to developing healthy bones, efficient heart and lung function as well as
improved motor skills and cognitive function. Physical activity can help to
prevent 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 of
sports for people is that they are required for our daily lives and competing
at the international area because of enjoyment of sports. For many years,
sports have been done by people. For example, have you ever thought why people
want to play football or other games? The answer may be easy since sports are
entertaining. They are sometimes magic as they catch our attention and give us
pleasure as much as we need. Sometimes overwhelming life conditions may be
unfair and make us unhappy. However, if there is a sport activity when we are
unhappy, we will probably be motivated and be refreshed again after the sport
activity. This should be the most important benefit of sports because many
people do sports for this reason. In addition, have you ever thought why
millions of people watch World Cup match without breathing? There might be some
reasons behind the action of watching football match. The most important one
might be the excitement and enjoyment of sport. Football match is breath taking
because it gives us pleasure to watch. In the pitch and near the pitch, there
are more than 18 men, and they are the representative of our sport culture.
Within the excitement of sports, countries are able to compete in the
international area. Due to this fact people like sports since they and their
countries are able to compete and beat opponent countries and this is the most
important reason to take pleasure from sports.
The final and least
advantage 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 than
thousand professional team and at least these team have 25 players. If this is
calculated, there are approximately 25,000 players without working staff,
scouts, coaches and managers. This should be the largest industry which employs
many people in Turkey. In addition, countries and clubs have to establish new
facilities for sports game. Some of them are the largest buildings in the
entire country that represent countries, for example Ataturk Olympic Stadium in
Turkey. Supplying funds for this buildings may be the publicity of countries
since constructing well designed stadiums help country prepare or organize big competitions
such as World Cup, Olympics, and Tennis Tournaments. Finally, sports allow
advertisement companies to make publicity of strong brands. For example,
sponsorship is one of the best publicity of one company. Everyone watches their
favorite team or athlete, and audience will probably see the sponsor of team or
athlete. For example, in England, Manchester United which is one of the most
powerful clubs in international area has a sponsor called Vodafone. If you are
from another you knew what’s sponsor it’s that.
All in all, we can
conclude that there are several advantages and benefits of sports and they have
impact on social/ cultural, economic and health. First, sports are required by
people to be fit, smart, and good looking. Second, sports are entertaining due
to many facts. Third, sports are the huge market for countries’ economies. In
my opinion, despite sports’ advantages, many people can’t believe that sports are
useful and beneficial. I hope that in the future these people will tend to be
more optimistically to sports since they are the necessity of our lives.
