Model Answer 1:
In today's world competition among countries for hosting any international sporting event has increased. Many people believe that international sporting events cause many issues. However I strongly disagree because it gives an opportunity to all nations to come together.
Firstly, for organizing any sporting event requires costly equipment, additionally there is a need of vast arrangement. For instance for arranging one cricket match stadium is required, people also purchase costly tickets for watching match. People who can travel around the world for watching match, for them living arrangements are required. This may cause unwanted expenses for countries who can host sporting event.
However, we cannot deny importance of sports in our life. Any international sporting event like Olympic Games gives an opportunity to all participants to perform. Sport lovers around world definitely would get best entertainment because of such events. Nowadays films, television serials are important, likely sports are also equally important. From this it becomes quite evident that such kind of event gives encouragement to sport activities.
Furthermore, it gives an opportunity to all nations around the world to come together. For instance in football world cup most of the countries can participate, which is very good for maintaining peace as well as maintaining good international relationship globally. This helps them to come closer to each other. This shows why sporting events have vast importance.
In conclusion although arranging sport events are expensive and causes some issues, it has vast importance at global level. For any sport man as well as sport lover it gives a chance not only to perform but also to entertain. Thus disadvantages of sporting events outweigh the advantages, and I believe that there are too many benefits because of such events.
