Examples of Sports in a Sentence

  1. Damian Lillard:

    It wasn’t easy at all because I just love being out there. Like, I love being out there playing, i’ve always been available to play but I think the older you get, the more experience that you have, not just in sports but in life, it becomes more important to play chess. My pride might say ‘Keep fighting it out, get the job done again. Try to get in the playoffs.’ And then the older me is saying ’You can’t do none of that stuff if you’re not at your best.'.

  2. Katrina Adams:

    We do have pretty good growth in our 10 and under population, it's really the teenagers that we are trying to keep in the sport because they have interests in other sports or they are just couch potatoes.

  3. William Foley:

  4. Jean Lee:

    As a young man in his mid-30s, Kim Jong Un must woo the next generation if he’s to rule for decades to come, sports and technology — two things all young people love — are part of that equation.

  5. Roy Jones:

    Mike Tyson said Thursday in an online press conference. Im coming to fight, and I hope hes coming to fight, and thats all you need to know. Promoters of the pay-per-view spectacle announced that Los Angeles Staples Center will be the site of the 54-year-old Tysons return to boxing on Nov. 28 for an eight-round main event against the 51-year-old Jones. Tysons last official bout was in June 2005, and the former undisputed heavyweight champion hasnt held a title since 1996. Roy Jones fought steadily through Roy Jones 40s, long after Roy Jones super middleweight and light heavyweight title reigns had ended, with his most recent bout in February 2018. Roy Jones also laughs at the idea that any time spent inside a boxing ring with Mike Tyson could ever be a mere exhibition, even though California commission officials have made it clear that Mike Tyson and Roy Jones shouldnt be attempting to seriously hurt each other during a fight with two-minute rounds. Officials say they plan to stop the bout if either fighter is cut or significantly injured. Who goes in the ring with the great, legendary Mike Tyson and thinks its an exhibition ? twelve-ounce gloves ? No headgear ? Really ? This is an exhibition ? Come on, bruh. Be real. In short, Mike Tyson and Roy Jones said everything one might expect from two cagey veterans of the fight game to promote real sporting interest in this endeavor, which came to life after the online world saw footage of Mike Tyson looking impressive while sparring earlier this year. Roy Jones eagerly accepted the opportunity for Mike Tyson highest-profile fight in a decade. Mike Tyson and Roy Jones believe theyll be able to put on a show worthy of their legends. Theyre also eager to be the latest in the growing line of athletes competing at elite levels into their 40s and beyond with improvements in sports science, nutrition and training. When I came along, at 32 years old, you were considered an old guy.
