Cross Country is not a sport
Debate Rounds (5)
Ukeireru (accept in Japanese)
That is the dictionary definition of the word "sport". I run Cross Country, and, believe me, it is extremely physically exerting to run at 10+ miles per hour for 3 miles straight. It takes a lot more skill to run than you may think. You may believe that running is a piece of cake, because all you have to do is move your legs, but it is much more than that. While running a race at sub-6:00 miles, dehydration, tiredness, cramps, and leg muscles tiring out are just some examples of the struggle it is to keep on moving during a race. It takes a lot of skill to put yourself in a state of mind that blocks out any pain, and focuses on breathing, stride efficiency, and the will to keep moving forward.
Watching Cross Country entertains me, and many others, so it is a form of entertainment -- furthermore proving my point of CC being a "real" sport.
