Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Professional Sports Person In this assignment I am going to explore the appropriate behaviour that is acceptable in a range of sporting situations. A professional sports person is someone who competes in a sport as a living. 4 different sporting situations that can influence professional sports persons behaviour. 1. Home life - This can influence a professional sports persons behaviour, as they might have a lack of sleep, and not eat and drink the correct things. If a professional sports person doesn't get the correct amount of sleep then their body is not fully restored and they won't be able to perform for a long period of time as normally, they are also not mentally prepared for the task in hand. If they have an alcoholic drink then there body will become dehydrated affecting their performance and behaviour dramatically. They may become aggressive towards their team mates, coach or officials and even their fans portraying a bad role model. If their diet is poor and they don't eat the correct types of food then they will become tired and sluggish and maybe even put weight on. ...read more.

If there is bad traits by a player then kids will easily follow in their example (for example when Eric Cantona got sent off from a football match he walked over to a fan in the crowd and kicked him) People change when they are on the pitch, you see their competitive side rather than their everyday side and in some cases this could be bad because it could be too competitive which could lead to fights etc and again if kids see this they will think its ok because their idols are doing it and they can do no wrong in their eyes. Theses 4 professional sports persons are suitable role models for younger players Gary Lineker is one of football's gentlemen. A silent man off the field, on it he was deadly. He was Player of the Year and top scorer. In his entire professional career, he didn't receive a yellow card. Due to never receiving a caution he gained the title "Mr Nice Guy" and because of this he is seen as a great ambassador for the English game and the face of football for the BBC presenting most football programmes. ...read more.

Conclusion

She has frequently made high-profile condemnations of performance-enhancing drugs in athletics, most famously at the World Athletics Championships in Edmonton in 2001 when Radcliffe and team-mate Hayley Tullett held up a sign protesting against the reinstatement of Russian athlete Olga Yegorova, after Yegorova had tested positive for the banned substance EPO. Radcliffe also wears a red ribbon when competing to show her support for blood testing as a method of catching drugs cheats. Kelly Holmes won 2 gold Olympic medals for the 800m and 1500m. Holmes spreads testing awareness, this helps kids fully understand the entire drug testing process realising there is no mistake. She hopes that it will help children with their ambitions to reach high levels in sports. These two women are both strong minded women. They both enjoy there sport which is running or sprinting and both achieve high levels of standards and hard work. This is a good role model for youngsters, as it shows with effort and training you can achieve what you want. Both these women also campaign on the anti doping and use of drugs, promoting healthy lifestyles again making children realise drugs are bad and wrong. ?? ?? ?? ?? - 1 - ...read more.
