Sports have become more than just fitness, physical activities, games and competition. The definition of sports expands with time and human creativity, from the simplest form to the complex form. Through sports, men develop sportsmanship, which connotes fair play or pro-social behaviour which goes beyond the bounds of conformity to rules. Sportsmanship is cited not only for sports but to portray positive attitude in accepting unwanted decision. For various reasons, mankind has strong interests in sports that the outcome of sports competition becomes important even to people who are not involved in the activity.
