Sports & Recreation

Physical contests, athletic achievements, and recreational games have always played a part in human activities. In both team and solo sports the human body has been pushed to its limits to improve its performance and break record upon record. The ancient Olympic Games are an early example of the contests in which humans engaged to display their prowess. While in modern times sports and games have become a lucrative source of entertainment, other leisure activities, like fishing or card and video games, can be just a way to relax, socialize, and even learn.
