Popular events like the football world cup and other international sporting occasions are essential in easing international tensions and releasing patriotic emotions in a safe way.

To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?


Nowadays, we have many global sport events throughout the year. Some people believe that by competing in sports can reduce tensions among nations and allowing people to peacefully express patriot. Personally speaking, I partially agree with this argument because though it is a safe way to unite citizen, yet it can create a rivalry between nations that can escalate into more serious conflict.
I agree that international sport events, like the World Cup or Olympic, can unite people in the nation because in these events they have representatives of the nation for each sport. By having the same related people, many people feel a sense of unity in the country that can also happen in other incidents like a war with others. Additionally, they can express their patriotism by cheering the national team. As a result, the population are bonded together without causing a conflict with other nation.
However, I think international sport competitions can cause conflict between nations. Because many time, some country focuses on a result too much that they decide not to play fairly or even cheat. For example, some Olympic athletes have used a drug to strengthen their bodies. Moreover, sometimes referees are bribed by oneside. These unfair practices might cause a conflict that creates hatred among nations. As a result, it can originate more serious problems afterwards that totally contrast to the goal of the events that want to reduce tension.
In conclusion, while global sport competitions can unite people in the nation, yet it can also escalate tension.
