Call for Entries: 2011 Px3 Competition, Sports

“Sport” comes from the Old French desport meaning “leisure.” A sport is an organized, competitive, entertaining, and skillful activity requiring commitment, strategy, and fair play, in which a winner can be defined by objective means.

A “fan”, short for fanatic and sometimes also called aficionado or supporter, is a person with an intense, occasionally overwhelming liking and enthusiasm.
