Discussion of Types of Athletes

It is a well-known fact, that sports competitions engage a lot of utterly distinct kinds of people with different states of physical endurance, character, and temperament (Lyle & Cushion 74). Just like that, it is reasonable to state that every one of such athletes reacts differently to stressful and unexpected situations during the competitions, winning and, vise versa, losing. When some sportsmen may require lots of practice and effort for becoming a champion, some may spend a little time on developing skills and stamina, but succeed more significantly anyway. With the skills of insightful observation of athletes and their behavior in sport, it becomes possible to classify them into three groups. Thus, the groups of unskilled, skilled, and talented athletes differ from each other with specific characteristics and traits. Amongst such there are motivation and a strong intent to win the competitions, different range of physical abilities, and personal skills and experience in sports.

The first type of unskilled athletes consists of certain individuals, who are engaged in the sports activities solely on a base of their interest and motivation; nevertheless, they lack physical abilities to achieve the level of competitions. Such athletes may not be interested in acquiring any skills of winning the sports competitions, because they are mainly focused on developing specific skills, which they consider useful only for themselves. Some of the unskilled sportsmen might have great strength and endurance; however, it is their initiative to abstain from the public reveal of their abilities and any kind of competitions at large.

The second group of athletes includes truly skilled people, who achieved a significant level of physical endurance and motivation, which gives them an opportunity almost invariably to participate and win in competitions in comparatively little time. However, in order to achieve success and considerable results in sports, such individuals ought to train as hard as possible every day, which is indeed dangerous for them and their health. Because of that, skilled athletes could easily and repeatedly make technical errors and worsen their health condition, which consequently causes them to hospitalize and be in need for more time for recovery.

The last but definitely not least of the groups represents a type of athletes, who are considered the most talented and the most promising figures in sports, their abilities and enthusiasm could efficiently serve as an example for any amateur sportsman. These athletes can achieve positive results in almost no time, and on top of that, their ability to improve their power and agility is substantially greater than other athletes’ due to notably good mobility. With such potential in sports competition, athletes of the third type can win championships and become almost absolute masters in their field of activity.

Thus, in order to conclude, it is necessary to state that there are three classified types of athletes – unskilled, skilled and talented individuals, whose physical abilities, level of motivation to win the competitions and personal skills differ in many ways. No matter to which type a certain athlete belongs, he or she has a full right to participate in sports competitions and develop his/her physical strength and mobility as long and as hard as the person wants. However, even in such terms, the mentioned earlier three types of athletes will remain classified like that, and some of the athletes could be successful, and some could do sports mainly for their own interest and health. As a matter of fact, it depends on a lot of different personal factors, but ones of the most influential will remain hard work and high motivation.
