4. Competition does not have to be feared. Often kids fear competition, making it into something scarier or more important than it needs to be . We can develop our confidence to do things that are hard or uncomfortable. 6. Competition teaches us to cope when things do not go our way.
1. In my presentation I am going to focus on the topic of objective in the media. I will try to say if the media can be objective or it is impossible. Nowadays the media are everywhere. There are TV, radio, internet and press. That give us lots of information but are they always the truth?
Its tentacles are everywhere … and they've left sports stars and administrators paralysed.
Social media has changed the planet, giving a voice to the voiceless, who often misuse it but don't care. It's empowered them and they're going nowhere.
This week has thrown up examples across the sporting landscape.
The Melbourne Cup crowd was down, betting was down, TV ratings in the toilet. There are many reasons leading to the decline but, the ABC story on cruelty to thoroughbreds at a Caboolture abattoir, aired a little over two weeks before the Cup, led to an online pile on of racing from which it was impossible to recover.
Ellyse Perry cites development of women's sport in Australia as biggest career highlight
Australian all-rounder Ellyse Perry has notched up plenty of career highlights, but her biggest is being involved in the "watershed moment" of women's sport in Australia.As a professional athlete who has been in the public eye since she first broke onto the international football and cricket circuit at the age of 16, Perry has grown with all the big developments in women's sport and remembers what it was like before it hit big-time popularity.
There was not a smartphone in sight, no texting or taking selfies, and no one rushing to get anywhere. The crowd was taking part in South Korea' s annual Space Out Competition, a contest to see who can stare off into space the longest without losing focus.
The US has overstepped its borders in every way. We must build a new world order to ensure security and Only two decades ago the world was ideologically and economically divided and it was the huge This global standoff pushed the sharpest economic and social problems to the margins of the
Post the Cup, jockey Michael Walker has been hammered after he was heavily fined for overuse of the whip on second place getter Prince of Arran. So bad has been the abuse hurled at him and his young family, he's thinking of giving it away.
Latrell Mitchell, the Roosters superstar, has been in a battle with Twitter and Instagram trolls all season. Mitchell, the proudest of young Indigenous men, has called out racism directed at him on these platforms.
In a perfect world, Mitchell would ignore the imbeciles and do what he does best. But it's not a perfect world and it has affected him. Without doubt, his form in the latter stages of the 2019 season fell away.
Rugby league has been at the forefront of tolerance for decades and racial issues have been few and far between. The game selected the first Indigenous captain of a national team when Artie Beetson was given the role way back in 1973.
Rugby boss admits massive Folau mistake
Re-signing Israel Folau was a mistake, Rugby Australia boss Raelene Castle has admitted to Peter FitzSimons.Folau was sacked earlier this year for again making homophobic comments on social media. He had already done so before re-signing with Rugby Australia on a four-year contract worth about $5 million.

However, these things mean little to Mitchell, a 22-year-old Millennial who sees the world through a different prism. The Baby Boomers and Generation X-ers who run clubs and the game must find a way of fully understanding this.
The world has changed and is not going back.
Those thinking with simplicity about Mitchell turning down $800,000-a-season to stay at the Roosters argue he's "greedy" and should stay in a "good system" at a club which has already yielded him two premierships.
There is no doubt the Roosters are the best run, and arguably best coached, football club in the 16-team competition, but that does not mean Mitchell must roll over and stay.
His head is full of many other thoughts. The most telling development is that people near him reached out to the Cowboys, the club at which the greatest Indigenous player of his generation, Johnathan Thurston, found lifelong sanctuary.
Rory McIlroy thrilled by rankings statistic: The first thing I've ever beaten Tiger at!
Rory McIlroy has now spent 500 weeks inside the top 10 in the Official World Golf Rankings, reportedly clinching a record.A Twitter post reported McIlroy, who turned 30 in May, had become the youngest player to spend 500 weeks inside the top 10 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

World news. A new study has found that teenagers who engage with social media during the night could be damaging their sleep and increasing their risk of anxiety and depression. Research has shown that teenagers need 9.5 hours of sleep each night but on average only get 7.5 hours.
For Mitchell, a move way up to North Queensland, in his mind, would provide him a sanctuary away from the noise.
For an example, look no further than Buddy Franklin. With two premierships under his belt, he bailed on the best run and coached club in the AFL - Hawthorn - to sign a nine-year deal with the Swans. Franklin was after a life outside of the Melbourne "AFL bubble" and has achieved that.
Tennis Australia will be the next to feel the full wrath of social media empowerment. Margaret Court in 2020 will celebrate the 50th anniversary of her 1970 grand slam-winning season.
She has called on TA to celebrate her achievement in the same way it did in January this year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Rod Laver's 1969 slam.
Court has a court named after her at Melbourne Park, so it's a no brainer, right? She has won 24 grand slam titles.
Good luck with that ya homophobic/transphobic bigot— Maddie Groves (@MaddieGroves_)
Wrong. Court, has a problem and it's a big problem for tennis. As a pastor of the Victory Life Centre Family Church in Perth, she is an outspoken opponent of same-sex marriage. Dangerous territory.
Greyhound trainers suspended for baiting
Three Victorian greyhound trainers have been suspended, reportedly for using possums to bait dogs.The live marsupials were used to spark the dogs' desire to chase, initiating a new live-baiting scandal, The Herald Sun reported on Wednesday.

Team sports are about so much more than their physical benefits. This is especially so when group sports activities are incorporated into a young person’ s life. This might have to do with the increased cognitive ability that comes from playing sports .
Gay formers stars Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova are at the forefront of a campaign to have her name removed from Margaret Court Arena and want female players to boycott the court.
Court's public campaign to be feted in the same way as Laver will open the floodgates to a tidal wave of social media posts, which will make it impossible for TA to honour her.
Here is but one example. Maddie Groves, the Queensland swimmer who won two silver medals at the Rio Olympics (200m butterfly and 4x200m freestyle relay), had this to say on Twitter in response to Court's public plea for recognition.
"Good luck with that ya homophobic/transphobic bigot".
As a strong believer in the right for gays to marry and a person who voted for same-sex marriage, I completely disagree with Court's antiquated views, and wish she didn't hold them. But, she does hold them and has a right to do so in the same way I have a right to hold the opposite view.
But that doesn't mean her life's achievements, which are even greater than Laver's statistically, should be wiped from the face of the earth.
Good luck TA. And baton down the hatches.
Becker sees tennis 'big three' gap closing .
Tennis's "big three" are still winning, but Boris Becker can see the gap closing as he prepares to captain Germany in January's ATP Cup in Brisbane.Roger Federer showed there was still plenty left in his 38-year-old tank with a vintage 6-4 6-3 defeat of Novak Djokovic at London's ATP Finals on Friday morning, keeping him in the hunt for a seventh season-ending crown.
