A sport is an organized, competitive, entertaining, and skillful activity requiring commitment, strategy, and fair play, in which awinner can be defined by objective means. Generally speaking, a sport is a game based in physical athleticism. Activities such as board games and card games are sometimes classified as "mindsports," but strictly speaking "sport" by itself refers to some physical activity. Non-competitive activities may also qualify, for example though jogging or playing catch are usuallyclassified as forms of recreation, they may also be informally called "sports" due to their similarity to competitive games.
Sports are governed by a set of rules or customs. Physical events such asscoring goals or crossing a line first often define the result of a sport. However, the degree of skill and performance in some sports such as diving, dressage and figure skating is judgedaccording to well-defined criteria.

Records are kept and updated for most sports at the highest levels, while failures and accomplishments are widely announced in sport news.
