Sports are defined with four important pillars.
Sports are games of time, space and relationships.
Elements of time are a part of all sports, we dare say. If you know of a sport that has no "time factor" within its realm, drop us a comment on the page that follows and explain that sport, as we'd love to know of those outlandish sports too.
Racing sports, such as competitive swimming, are all about the time, the watch, the speed it takes to get from start to finish in a minutes, seconds, tenths of seconds and even hundreths of seconds.
In the past, there were some periods of the sport of swimming when they results were posted to a thousand-of-a-second. Presently, if there is a tie, when two competitors touch the wall at exactly the same time, the tie is to the hundredth of a second.
Time matters in all sports. And time is a larger factor is many of the racing sports.
