A brief history of sport

Historians believe that sports date back to ancient times—even prehistory. Sports were initially conceived as a way to practice and train for more practical purposes like hunting and fighting. In Ancient Greece, the Olympic Games were formed, which was an organized competition featuring events like sprinting and wrestling.

The Olympics of Ancient Greece were held every four years, with the time period being known as the Olympiad, and we still follow that tradition in the modern games. More organized team sports began to emerge, and many team sports that are still popular today began to take shape over the last 200 years, such as basketball and baseball. Basketball has come a long way since its inception and is now one of the most popular team sports in the United States, and it’s gaining popularity worldwide. In fact, there are tens of millions of people who play basketball all over the world, from organized teams to pickup games at the park.
