Fairness in Sports and the Highest Peaks in the World
The concept of fairness is one of the most important values in our society. The idea behind it is simple: If something unfair happens, then there must be some reason why it happened. For example, if someone hits your head with a hammer because they are angry at you or want to hurt you, then this would be considered unfair. A person may not like another’s actions, but they cannot do anything about them. When someone does something wrong, they have to pay for their mistake.
In other words, it is up to the individual whether or not they will accept the consequences of their action.
In sports, fairness is very important. There are certain rules that must be followed when playing a sport and these rules are called “the laws”. These laws are set out in a book called the Wada (World Anti Doping Agency). The purpose of the Wada is to make sure that all athletes follow these rules. However, sometimes things go wrong and this results in cheating.
Cheating is defined as any action which violates the spirit of the rules. For example, if someone cheats during a competition, then they are breaking one of the laws.
Some rules are stricter than others, but if a person breaks ANY of the rules in the Wada then they are not being fair. This is why it is important to follow the laws so that everyone can have a good time playing sports.
It is very important to follow the rules whilst playing sport. If you break the rule, you may get a warning. If you do it again, you will probably be disqualified and not win any prizes.
There are two very important rules that everyone must know before starting any competition. These are:
The first rule is the ‘No Foul’ rule. This means that nobody can hurt anyone else deliberately with an action which is not part of the sport. For example, pushing someone from behind so that they fall and hurt themselves would be breaking this rule.
