An athlete who is a good sport is someone whose conduct and attitude demonstrate gracious behavior before, during, and after competition. In fact, good sportsmanship demands
that nothing be done before, during, or after a game to cheapen or detract from victory.
• Shaking hands with a competitor after a competition
• Appreciating those who support you
• Assisting a competitor in need
• Acknowledging a competitor’s skills to others
• Accepting praise with grace and humility
• Avoiding or deflecting all opportunities to criticize opponents or judges
The opposite of good sportsmanship is poor sportsmanship, which is characterized by winners who gloat over their victory, jeer at their competitors, boo at national anthems, fail
to congratulate their competitors, or whine over their losses.
