“Sport” is an umbrella term, but it encompasses a range of ideas. “Sport” is a term commonly used to describe any sort of organized competitive activity, whether it’s a game in a competition, or a contest for sportsmanship. “Sport” can also refer to a set of activities related to sport, such as horse racing. ” Sport” is often used in association with “ice-breaking” exercises, such as swimming 200 meters over a cold pool, or undertaking the toughest obstacle course possible. “Sport” can also refer to a particular discipline of sports, such as motocross, racing, golf, rugby, hockey, softball, tennis, swimming, surfing, sailing or snowboarding.
In its most general sense, “sport” means any sort of physical activity that exercises the mind or the body. It could be competitive games like track and field, weightlifting, rowing, fencing, sprinting, skating, or motorised sports. But it could also include non-physical activities, such as learning to dance, taking martial arts classes, or taking up dancing lessons. Sport can include any combination of these. Sport can be skill-based, as in skill-based games such as chess matches, or it can be physical exertion-based, as in participation in competitive sports like rowing, skating and sailing.
