In recent years, sportspeople are highly motivated by reward money and fame; however, their main motive is to win a match or break world records in the past decades. This attitude would affect the sports and people who admire them and wanted to become a sportsperson. I will discuss the reason for the attitude change and the adverse effects on sports.
Firstly, a developing country like India does not support sports; that is the core reason why India lacks in sports. Secondly, if someone struggled and became a sports champion, they would not be recognized by the government or society. For example, most people in India believe that cricket is the only sport, and they worship cricketers as God. However, a girl named Kanimozhi from the southern part of India won the gold medal in an international event for the sport kabaddi, where not many of us know about her. Due to the fact, sports champions get demotivated; consequently, they get attracted to money and fame rather than working towards success or make proud of their country.
Despite the fact, young people who admire a sportsperson would wrongly be guided by their viewpoint. This would affect not only a person but also the entire generation, who was waiting to achieve something in sports and chose sports as their passion. Although the government does not support sports, there are many non-governmental organizations, who support financially. Moreover, they encourage a deserving person to participate in various competitions and aid them in all aspects.
In conclusion, sports champions are attracted to money and fame because of the non-support from the country; however, they can seek assistance or scholarship from non-governmental organizations to achieve their desired goal, which would be an excellent example for the next generation.
