What makes a sport a sport? Some things are so common they are obviously a sport: baseball, basketball, football, hockey, golf, etc. There are other things that seem to be a sport every 4 years, when the Olympics roll around. Things like wrestling, gymnastics, swimming, track and field, and biking. Then there are things we see on ESPN that sometimes don't seem to fit. Fishing? Hunting? Dog tricks? Hot dog eating contest?
No matter what the sport is, there are some things that all athletes have in common, except maybe the professional hot dog eater. They all practice to get better. They all train hard to get better. And they all have people to help them get better. At a professional level, an athlete can have a team coach, team trainer, personal trainer, nutritionist, sports physiologist, and an agent. That's a lot of people all trying to help one person.
Who is helping you? Sure, you'll think of friends and family first. But how are they helping you? In sports, the goal is to make better athletes. How about in life? What are your friends helping you become?
