Essay 10: The Benefits Of Hosting International Sporting Events And The Ways To Improve The Standard Of Sports In The Country

Mind Map
The benefits of hosting international sporting events absolutely outweigh the disadvantages.In fact, many countries raised their hands to host the 2022 World Cup last year. There are three reasons why the benefits always outweighs the disadvantages in the host country.

First of all, hosting international sports events can give a good chance to make a steady infrastructure. It includes making the new network of public transportation such as subways constructed for the Olympics in China. Consequently, it would also lead to a comfortable life after the events.

Secondly, it would grow national pride in their minds. Achieving success as the international host brought about the confidence in leadership and techniques. We can historically regard one of the reasons why Japan developed sharply after World War II was due to success in the Tokyo Olympics.

Finally, it results in galvanizing tourism.The fans from overseas would spend much money on hotel, Olympic merchandise, and traditional foods. ("Sport goods" or "sporting goods" is a very general term relating to equipment, instruments, or tools related to certain sports (example: hockey stick, baseball glove, football helmet, shoulder pads). The more correct term would be "Olympic merchandise" which refers to souvenirs.) In addition to this, it could play an important role in the tourism industry in terms of sightseeing tours.

It can be said then that the host of an international sporting event will create many advantages for their country. For that reason, the benefits outweigh the disadvantages.

Maintains international friendlies
Economic growth

The Ways To Improve The Standard Of Sports In The Country

Improving the standard of sports include efforts from the government and citizens in one’s country.

Sports can be defined as physical activities in which people compete against each other to win. In some countries, sports arena seemed to be dull and extremely limited when most of the athletes or sports persons failed to show the true colors of theirs in most of the championships. That’s why we need to follow a few reachable steps in order to revive Malaysian sports. In this manner, our sports can be enhanced gradually and be better than ever.

First, the government must get kids involved in sports at early age to improve our country sports. According to Jay Marciano (2006), he stated that “sports in the country have stagnated(停滞) over the years due to an apparent lack of participation from the younger generation because too much emphasis(重点) is being placed on academic excellence”. 

Nowadays, the mentality of our society focuses on the academic brilliance and neglect the sports development in our country. It is important to bear in mind that people can succeed in both academic and sports. The youngsters can be excellent in both fields if they are given a chance by the parents to prove their abilities in sports. Therefore, parents must play a big role in encouraging their children to get involved in sports. Besides, the ministry should concentrate on discovering young talents by providing and hiring(招聘) eligible(资格) coaches(教练) to train the kids at primary and secondary schools. If it is necessary, the foreign coaches should be imported to our country due to lack of professional and skilled coaches. Furthermore, the monarch of the high jumping world, Javier Sotomayor from Cuba stated that his country has developed a detailed system to identify and select talented youngsters. As a result, Cuba has won many gold medals at the Olympic and world level since 1959.

Next, the government should launch more big sports events in our country to create a sporting culture and as platforms(平台) to find new talents(人才). The Malaysian Youth and Sports Minister, Datuk Azalina Othman said that it was decided that any party can held sporting events that could help the government in finding champions to represent our country. It is indeed a brilliant idea to allow all parties in our country to plan and organize sports events to the citizens. When sports competitions are widely held, there will be no difficulties in finding the crème de la crème in the country sports arena to represent the country at the international level. Besides, the Ministry of Youth and Sports must encourage the society to take part in sports events and make sports as one enjoyable occasion(场合) for everyone. With that, they will know the importance and benefits their generation can gain for joining sports at the higher level. Totally, our sports will be so much better than before as the citizens become appreciative(欣赏) in the sports pitch(足球场).
Finally, the government must upgrade the sports facilities in the sports complexes in all states. In order to do so, they must also allocate funds with higher amount to the sports councils(委员会) in the country. The standard of sports can definitely be augmented(增加) gradually by instigating(煽动) these steps because of our country’s condition now. As we can clearly see, the country sports level is beyond(超越) our satisfaction(满意). It is about time to change via implementing new prompt(迅速) innovative(创新) suggestions that I have mentioned above. Actually, the steps of upgrading and increasing the sports complexes in our country should be done long time ago as there is nothing to worry about in terms of the impact to the Malaysian’s sports future. The athletes would be more inspired(激发) to achieve the goals when there are supports and contributions from the government with the building of the proper amenities(设施) that give conveniences(方便) to them.

In conclusion, there are many incentives(奖励) that we may stumble on(无意中发现) to improve the standard of our country’s sports. All we have to do is to select the best ones and execute(执行) the chosen ones. Sports are something that contributes a lot to our country. Thus, we must give our utmost(最) to launch the best efforts(成就) to developing this arena(竞技场).
