Spirit of Sports and Sports Updates

Competition is what makes us better, faster, and stronger than the others Sports have a recorded history of at least 3,000 years. Many early games required throwing spears, stakes, and rocks, and sparring one-on-one with opponents. 

The Ancient Greeks brought official sports to the world with the inaugural Olympic Games in 776 BC, which included activities such as foot and chariot races, wrestling, jumping, discus, and javelin throwing.

Sports today isn’t just a competitive event, but a celebration of the human spirit, ethics, and values such as Fairplay, honesty, and health. Every sport has a governing body that ensures the events take place under understated guidelines, hence providing authenticity.
