Vocabulary Tricks Part 5: Games and Sports

We all are familiar with the saying that Health is Wealth. Games help us in keeping body alert, youthful and energetic. They have a greater role in instilling a spirit of adventure. By playing games, we get rid of all worries and anxieties.
Games help in learning various traits like punctuality, self-discipline and diplomacy. Children these days do not indulge in physical activities due to which they become obese. They should be emboldened to take part in games.

However, a performance of our country is grossly disappointing in Olympics. Our players are not able to grab medals. Importance is given only to the Cricket. But accusations of match-fixing are harming the image of the game.
Following years of motivation, some sports like Kabaddi and Wrestling are gaining recognition. There is a need to give awards and incentives to sportspersons giving spectacular performances.
