Pick only one

http://www.9news.com.au/world/2016/01/25/12/38/dog-accidentally-runs-us-half-marathon-finishes-in-an-impressive-seventh-place

How about we agree that sports are only those competitive activities that animals can't accidentally take part in and win.

>A dog that left her Alabama home for a walk has wound up running in a local half-marathon – which she ended up finishing in an impressive seventh place.

>Two-year-old Ludivane, a bloodhound from Elkmont, a town with a population of only about 400, had been let out for a stroll by her owner, April Hamlin, when she came across the Trackless Train Trek Half Marathon.

>Always up for a run, the puppy committed to the endurance challenge – and finished the 21km course in just over an hour and 30 minutes.

>The Elkmont Half Marathon honoured the canine’s participation and awarded her with a medal.
>>
>Seventh place
>Winning
Also a regular pet cat can run 100m faster than Usain Bolt, so I don't sure why this should come as a surprise.

all dem false starts though
also unsportsmanlikes
also murder

I want to pet that dog, I think he's a good dog

>>65183335
Can't a quarterback just run with the ball? If you teach an elephant to carry a ball with its nose and run forward that should be enough to win the game.
>>
>>65183342
I don't think unsportsmanship and false starts would be a problem, I mean Koko is pretty smart, she even has a IQ of 85-ish something.

But I can see manslaughter happening

They'd be GOAT at MMA

Wait....Why the fuck aren't there man vs beast underground gambling videos to be found on deepweb? I fucking know they probably do it in Thailand or Moldova or somewhere else similarly sketchy.

Or even just animal vs animal would be kewl

You could put whales or something in front of hockey goals and you'd never lose. Hell maybe even football goals.

Seriously though, what constitutes a sport? Is any physical activity that can be competitive a sport? Is any competitive game a sport?

Car racing? Poker? Chess? Red bull air races? Ice skating? Sky diving? Diving?

Where do we draw the line?
>>
>>65186361
A physical competition where your opponent has a direct impact on your performance
>>
>>65186406
So the Tour De France is not a sport? You ride next to opponents but it's pretty much all endurance and drugs, they don't block each other.

Skiing, golf, drag racing, snowboarding, skateboarding, bowling....all non-sports since opponents are only indirectly effected by each other's performance in scoring?

why do people even watch marathon. the whole point of watching sports is to follow the ups and downs of the competition and perhaps some dramatic endings. none of it exists in marathon. the guy whos leading with 5km left to the race is going to win it
>>
>>65183284
i think you guys are missing the real story here
