It's been played outside or indoor, on team or person basis, with or without contest, but demanding some sort of physical exertion and ability. Some Sports, like swimming, fishing, running and hunting have evolved out of lifestyle of human life and the simple manners. Some Sports, like riding, shooting have derived from history and early military practices. Sports like boxing, jump and wrestling, had sprung up from challenges and the impulsive individual outbursts and occasional hostilities that had accompanied human interaction.
The development of sport in the modern days and in the early, middle ages has been incredible. In the primeval days, Roman and the Greek had evinced a keen interest in developing sport. It was the Greek who arranged the Olympics and interestingly individuals from all around the globe watched and participated it. So modern Olympics had originated in Athens city of Greece.
