Sports

Sport is considered to be, in all of its forms, a competitive physical activity through individual or group participation. Other than personal satisfaction of victory, a sport is used also for entertainment from the point of the spectator. Sports are usually governed by a set of rules or customs, which serve to ensure fair competition, and allow consistent adjudication of the winner.

There are artifacts and structures that suggest that the Chinese engaged in sporting activities as early as 2000 BC. Monuments to the Pharaohs indicate that a number of sports, including swimming and fishing, were present in ancient Egypt. Ancient Persian sports such as the traditional Iranian martial art of Zourkhaneh had a close connection to the warfare skills.

To the present day numerous sport disciplines emerged, while the rules of the existing ones have adapted according to the evolution of the given discipline. It is estimated in 2013 that the global sport industry is worth over $620 billion.

When it comes to sports, there are several aspects to consider such as amateurism, professionalism, technology and politics. All of these aspects influence and define a certain path of a sports person. Sport can be undertaken on an amateur, professional or semi-professional basis, depending on whether participants are incentivized for participation, usually through payment in a form of a wage or salary.

The documentaries and video materials compiled in this category are concerned with various types of sport and the incredible stories of the athletes around the world.
