Answer

Today’s Sports are More About Making Money Than Entertainment

In ancient times, Athens games were started as a means to entertain as well as celebrate human excellence. Sports persons or the athletes enjoyed a position of high eminence in the society. They did not play to win; but they participated in true spirit of a sportsman. Today all sports activities have been commercialized and sports persons are among then highly paid people in the world. At the time of any sports-event, they make crores of rupees by advertising products. Today, all sports activities are organized as a means to make money. There is much less to celebrate about victory, but more about making money.
