Successful sports professions can earn a great deal more money than people in other important professions. Some people think this is fully justified while others think it is unfair. Discuss both these views and give your opinion. 


Sports always hold a unique place in our World. Around the Globe, people do sporting watching it, some people are fan of them.

Nowadays, we see The Olympic Games in London. Tons of sportsmen participate in this event, and of course they will be paid quite enough by the government. That is why all athletes are rich. Sport is viewed as a professional career, in which top players earn a high salary. But do you know how they get their aim of becoming the great sportsmen? Seeing as how they worked hardly, how they gave up and again started going on. They are really looking forward to achieve the goal. It is honored job.

On the other hand, various professions contribute our World to move smoothly. Doctors put in all life studying to get the diploma, they help people to survive. Teachers spend enough time teaching children, put up with their caprices. Firemen rescue their own health to save other`s lives. We can continue the long list of important professions infinitely. But why sportsmen get an excellent salary more than doctors, teacher, firemen, nurses and others? My opinion is that both of jobs are worthy of earning a lot of money, they both were trying until they are blue. But it is not a mistake of sportsmen, it belongs to the government of current country where they come from. Athletes are paid well just because of their fame. Producers make lots of advertisement in which they take part.

 In conclusion, I will add sportsmen are not guilty. Some people think this is fully justified while others think it is unfair, I am neutral.
