A worldwide celebration of international sports day started on 23 August 2013. But now UN proclaimed that international sports day would be celebrated on 6th April each year. They select this day because this special day marks the opening of the first modern Olympic games in Athens in 1896.
The International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) focus on giving access to sport to the whole world by celebrating this day. It is a day when some of the world’s leading sports people work together with communities to bring sporting opportunities to enrich lives, particularly children and also provide healthy lifestyles to the youngsters. International sports day is not a public holiday, but it is celebrated globally for the promotion of peace and good relations now a day’s famous events like the football world cup and worldwide games are necessary to make calmness, serenity and generate feelings of love for nations in a secure way. I firmly believe that social events create devotional feelings in one another’s heart.
Advantages Of International Sports Events:
It is generally accepted that social events like the football world cup and other worldwide Olympic activities are necessary to create peace, nationalistic feelings. I firmly believe that international sporting events are always a source of attraction for everyone. A large number of people used to attend these events to express their love and support for their country.
To begin, sports creates a good bonding among countries To illustrate if players of different nations play at an international level they are formed with long-term relationships as a result of brotherhood among countries increased. When players from various countries meet they shake their hands and hugs with each other.
Moreover, it also improves the coordination among the countries. In other words, when the players from different nations play at an international level they learn various religions cultures and so on. So that they know about different nations cultures and they start to respect one another. It is fact that when players go to different countries and play worldwide events it also enhances tourism. For example when two different nations’ plays social events together then the players from one country obviously go to that nation where events are played.
Moreover, it rises up tourist level as well as it upsurges that country national income. It is true that events like world football and other Olympic games can be used as a tool to maintain the world peace and show patriotism. In these events athletes from numerous countries competing for each other in a sportive way and clasp hands to greet each other. For example during a football match between two nations’ people from other countries obtain suitable information about those cultures, traditional and religious. It also promotes the economic growth of each country by enhancing trade and tourism. The one important point is when the international play has occurred the president of many countries goes to spot for watching the games. This could result in an opportunity to discuss any issues between the rival’s countries.
International activities create good bonding among the countries and also help to form a long-term relationship. Although it increases the patriotic emotions in a good way. To illustrate before starting the match between two teams players clasps hand in greeting with the opposite team. As a result, it develops the team spirit at the state, national and increases the feeling of brotherhood.
Disadvantages of International Sports:
Many people argue that such occasions are mandatory for creating nationalistic emotions in a secure way. Other states that these events could boost up tensions between countries and deteriorate their relations.
It is often seen that people start fighting over supporting their country. Sometimes the situation goes out of control and causes a lot of causalities. Many unbiased people are also hurt in their riots. This will end up leaving bad impressions of their country to the world. On the flip side, it is often seen that some countries start fighting in order to support their countries. Sometimes condition becomes out of control and generates bad relation among the countries. Therefore the survey reveals that athletes should be given a proper explanation about controlling their emotions during the games because it gives negative effects to the relationships between two nations.
In conclusion, it is undeniable fact that international sports are e better tool in easing international relations among nations and show patriotism in a right way. I personally agree with this statement but it is necessary for supporting athletes to control their emotions in games because this kind of behavior affects the pride of the nation. After analyzing both views, social occasions are effective tools to decrease the tensions among nations. Moreover, it is also important that coaches should give training to the athletes to control their negative sentiments on the pitch of the stadium.
