Sport (or sports) is all forms of usually competitive physical activity which,[1] through casual or
organised participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing
entertainment to participants, and in some cases, spectators.[2] Hundreds of sports exist, from those
requiring only two participants, through to those with hundreds of simultaneous participants, either in
teams or competing as individuals.

Sport is generally recognised as activities which are based in physical athleticism or physical
dexterity, with the largest major competitions such as the Olympic Games admitting only sports meeting
this definition,[3] and other organisations such as the Council of Europe using definitions precluding
activities without a physical element from classification as sports.[2] However, a number of competitive,
but non-physical, activities claim recognition as mind sports. The International Olympic Committee
(through ARISF) recognises both chess and bridge as bona fide sports, and SportAccord, the international
sports federation association, recognises five non-physical sports,[4][5] although limits the amount of
mind games which can be admitted as sports.[1]
