Task 1 分析
Task 2 分析
some countries achieve international sporting success by building specialized facilities only for the training of top athletes, instead of providing facilities that everyone can use.
Do you think it is a positive of negative trend?
In great 2014 Brazil world cup mania , every country team is aiming to catch the international attention by its better performance. In order to achieve success, some countries choose to be financially supportive for top athletes in terms of sporting facilities while neglecting others. For me, this is not a witted decision.
It is unassailable that the great expenditure on sporting facilities only for top athletes is not only unjustified/unfair for the other sportsmen but also the common people. For the former, they will certainly feel a sense of disappointment under the sharp comparison with those top guys, leading to the unwilling results in some international sport games, especially in the teamwork sporting such as football, basketball as well as volleyball. For the latter, it fails to provide the right that is supposed for the public paying tax. Actually, by contrast, building up more community sporting facilities seems to be a wiser way for a nation to ladder up its international reputation and the success accompanied, because it never fails to create an sporting atmosphere and spirit among the public.
Admittedly, this preference for top athletes will exert great motivation only on the people involved, leading to their great confidence, encouragement as well as pressure. By standing out of others, a certain group of sporting elites become the idols of the nation, contribution much more to the products they speaks for. However, this commercial success is not as important as the success of a nation’s capability to imbed sport spirit into minds of common people so as to change the mind of public.
All in all, spending huge amount on the sporting facilities only on top athletes is a bane rather than the boon it offers. For the government, it is advisable to balance the expenditure on the common and the elites for a far more satisfying outcome.(309)
