Car racing is just driving around the same track 127 times while- lets face it - you might be working hard, but ultimately the car is doing most of the grunt work.
I can't see the upside of boxing. The winner looks like a hamburger and has mental issues within a few years and the loser will look like roadkill and have mental issues within a few years. It's too much self destructing, in my opinion, to be considered a sport, let alone an olympic sport.As long as it isn't fake, it is more of a sport than almost anything else.
Fun fact is that Karate isn't an olympic sport because "it's too violent". Meh.
So to put it in a single sentence:
A personal and physical activity which requires which involves constant interaction with either other players or the sport itself (e.g) dancing
And not a sport;
Anything involving animals / vehicles or non-constant interaction.
Examples are bowling, golfing, motorcycling, horse-back riding.
Those are mere finesses of the art of handling such things. Equivalent to "who has the neatest hand-writing" because similar to the person best in golf, that other person is best in writing e.g making the most out of a tool.
Scars show you the remnants and failures of the past.

I don't find a waste of talent such as keyboard seizures to be a sport.

Nope not the same sport. Its a bunch of terrible unattractive people trying to do something they shouldnt be doing. Don Imus had it right when he described women's basketball. When they learn to posterize people with crazy dunks, reject shots 7 rows up in the empty stands, talk smack, and actually play with some form then they might get some respect. Oh and stop looking like the geico caveman's sister.
You mention Tennis. There is a huge difference in women and Mens tennis.
There is a lot more action in mens tennis, the game is much faster, they hit harder.
I'd bet that if you put world#1 female tennis player up against world #500 Male player, the male would still win the game.

Looks have absolutely nothing to do with sports. Judging woman's sports based off the players appearance is sexist and ignorant. Hate to say it but I can almost guarantee the WORST WNBA player can still beat you. Yes I do agree however that for Basketball in this instance the Men do have an extremely higher skillset.

I count speed walking and ping pong as sports that shit looks well tiring.
Any form of synchronised swimming/ballet/dance = ART not sport imo.
Kolopotho: I will find it incredibly shocking and rare if some guy walks up to a girl in a pub and says "i play a level 80 druid in world of warcraft" to which she will respond with "TAKE ME NOW".
So the only sports that should exist are sports that require immense strength or endurance?
If that's the case, why not just cut out all the bull shit and put two guys against eachother in a weightlifting competition or running competition?
Sports are games of STRATEGY and TEAMWORK and SKILL as well as testing physical limits. Some depend on one aspect more than others but just because they lack one element doesn't make them any less of a sport.
You do know there are categories, right?
These are sports you'd usually see at the Olympics or things that are based on judging panels.
Skateboarding, BMXing, etc.
Football, Basketball, Baseball, etc.
The point is, if you are only saying that something is a sport based on how much physical effort is put into it, then there should only be 1 sport.
"Lifting heavy shit and then going for a run."
Also, motorsports = motorsports =! a sport. People who participate in motorsports do not call them a sport. I don't know why people keep bringing up motorsports.
I'd like to see you tell someone that trains in these particular styles that their martial art is fake...at the very least, you would be laughed at. The whole point of MMA events from the early 90's was to prove which martial arts were the most effective and to filter out/identify the less effective styles.
I'm not sure why you think MMA events can't be scored, either...that doesn't even make sense.
