My position stands that color guard is indeed a sport. We have practices just like sports, we compete just like sports, their is a winner and a loser, and we have equipment just like sports. An example of this type is sport that more people are familiar with is gymnastics. Gymnastics goes to the Olympics and most people consider a sport. They compete against groups and other individuals in competitions to win awards. If you gave it a try would find that it is just as hard ad any other sport.

Color Guard is not a sport. Color Guard involves a competitive event but does not meet the defining feature of a focus on physical exertion. Rather, Color Guard relies on the participant's artistic merit and ability to perform synchronized tasks. Thus Color Guard is not a sport, but simply a competitive event.

It follows that some of the Olympic events such as shooting are not sport.
