Mine usually doesn't because I mean I can just go naming a bunch of activities classified as sports by a lot of people and usually or at all don't have the competition element (examples include weightlifting, skateboarding(it is trying to become a competetive sport with all the freestyling events and stuff), fishing and hunting).

If it ain't competitive, I feel like the better term is "recreational activity".

So you would call the so called "extreme sports" instead "recreational activities"?

Yes, sports are competitive. If scores are being kept then how are they not competitive?

But I am asking if something like fishing or skateboarding would be considered a sport to you?
