A sport film is essentially a movie genre which makes use of sport as the main theme of the movie. It’s usually a fictional production where a fictional sport, fan of sport, or athlete are heavily involved, and that rely strongly on sport for their plot’s resolution. Most of these films tend to be rather commercial in nature, and also tend to focus on certain sports and/or athletes. However there are a few exceptions, such as the 2021 release Train Hard, which was based around the life of the Olympic athlete Evan Lysacek. Other examples include Batman Forever, The Mask, and the Harry Potter films, among others.
When producing a sport film it’s important to ensure fair competition among the various athletes and teams, and ensure that the result will be a fair one. This is sometimes difficult as several different types of sport can mean differing standards of play for spectators, and may therefore require different rules to those applied within the respective sport itself. For instance, football is a very popular sport, with several national and international governing bodies involved in its management. The game is played between two competing teams, with each team winning once and then losing another game. Therefore the winner of the game is the team with the most points, and becomes the winner of the tournament.
Non-physical sports have far less governing bodies than physical sports, which makes them much easier to determine results and qualify for. However they still have standards to uphold, for example the disqualification system for athletes. Because many of these sports are not governed by international sports committees, the standards and rules of these particular games are subject to interpretation by individual sport administrators and teams, which can lead to controversy and dispute. For example the disqualification of an Olympic athlete due to performance-enhancing drugs is currently the topic of a legal case in US law.
In comparison, many more governing bodies and international sports committees monitor the rules and qualifications for many different sport events. In the past, rugby was only played by men, which had much stricter rules than many other sports. But today there are female rugby players as well as male rugby players – giving the sport a gender perspective that may not have been considered before. Rugby has also developed its own form of status, with the Union switching from the No. 1 sporting team to the Women’s Sevens team in 2021. As of now there are no plans to switch back to men’s rugby.
Sport is inherently international, with all disciplines including swimming, diving, gymnastics and table tennis having their own sets of governing bodies in order to add official weight to their respective rankings. These sport governing bodies ensure fair play, increased participation and increased media exposure of the sport. For the World Cup series, which is held every four years in another country, this extra level of regulation is vital in ensuring that the tournament is as even as possible, with each country qualifying either through their performance in previous tournaments or through their own performances in their own countries.
It’s easy to say that sport should be enjoyed by everyone, but that’s easier said than done when it comes to getting everyone to play a certain sport or even get to watch it. If you want to see more women playing sport then make sure that you look to watch the Women’s World Cup Series or the Women’s Autumn Series.
