Speech on Sportsmanship


Today the topic of my speech is Sportsmanship.
Sportsmanship means behavior that’s fair, honest, and polite in a game or sports competition. Sportsman is a person who can take a loss or defeat without complaint, or victory without gloating, and who treats his opponents with fairness, generosity, and courtesy.

This is a quality which we need at the time when we are both winning or losing the game. It’s a display of mutual respect for opponents and officials. It creates the kind of positive atmosphere that will make it possible for every participant to feel proud of their own efforts and results (no matter what the scoreboard shows) and acknowledge the efforts of their teammates, opponents, and referees.

And this is what we all need in every walk of life.
