  Guardian | Sporting 'crown jewels' must stay free to air, EU rules
The decision means that armchair sporting fans can continue to watch the Wimbledon tennis tournament and the FA Cup final free, without fearing they may be snapped up by subscription channels.

  Sport - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A sport consists of a physical and mentally competitive activity carried out with a recreational purpose for competition, for self-enjoyment, to attain excellence, for the development of a skill, or some combination of these.
Ice skating and Tai chi, for example, are sports that come close to artistic spectacles in themselves: to watch these activities comes close to the experience of spectating at a ballet.
The closeness of art and sport in these times was revealed by the nature of the Olympic Games which, as we have seen, were celebrations of both sporting and artistic achievements, poetry, sculpture and architecture.
