9 из 14 Оценка эксперта внизу
Some people claim that sport makes people closer, while others hold an opposing point of view.
In my opinion, doing sports or watching sports matches on TV unites people. Firstly, going to stadiums as spectators or being viewers watching sports matches on TV at home unite sports fans with common interests as they support one team. Secondly, doing sports can be a good family habit when all members get together, spend more time with each other. Common sports activities help family to appreciate spending time together.
However, there are people who claim that sport does not unites people but creates a rivalry.
They believe that taking part in sports competitions make people more egoistic and lead to hate between competitors. For instance, fights are not a rare phenomenon between members of one team. They are caused by a rivalry for leadership.
Personally, I disagree with above-mentioned opinion. Team sports do not create the rivalry but unite teammates as they have a common purpose — to win. In this case members are linked by a common goal that makes people to cooperate with each other. Team competitions strengthen a team spirit and create an atmosphere of unity.
To sum up, despite different opinions, I would like to emphasize that sport makes people closer.
