Comment on the following statement:
|Sport unites people. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
The question of sports’ influence on people has been discussed for quite a long time. Some people say that sports connect people, whereas others do not agree. They believe that it does not link people at all.
In my opinion sport connects people. First of all, when a person does sport he or she has to communicate with other people and communication usually unites. For example, people go to a gym and exercise with people who also like physical activity. After such interaction they become friends or if they were friends, their friendship become deeper. Secondly, as a rule hobbies unite people and sports is one of hobbies. For instance, there are a lot of clubs that gather people with the same interests. They even declare that our main purpose is to unite people and sport is not an exception.
At the same time there are people who say that sport is just physical exercises and nothing more. People come to a gym do their workout and come back home without communicating with each other.
I do not agree with the opinion mentioned above. It is impossible to workout together without communication. People with mutual interests always interact with each other because it is natural.
In conclusion I would like to say there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight sport does not unite people, but in actual fact doing sport together is the best way to make new friends. Thus, I strongly believe sport unites people.
