Do you agree or disagreeVictories in international sports and games bring recognition and fame to countries. Since, a huge amount of money needed to spend for organizing these events, it raise a question whether government should use the money for lavish international sporting events or bringing up young talents. However, I feel, it is wise to keep a balance between these two, which will be more beneficial for the country.International sports competitions like football world cup, demands a drastic amount of money, for arranging all necessary facilities like, galleries, tracks, and so on. As it is a prestigious issue, countries try to make it in a best way they can. These sports events are excellent opportunities for the local people to see their favorite sport stars performing lively. It gives a chance to exhibit their tradition, encourages tourism and boosts all associated service industries, such as hotel industry, that help in the economic progress. Another point is that, the favorable climatic conditions and support of local people contribute motivation and inspiration to home country's team to win the game.Nevertheless, government cannot keep a blind eye on the sprouting athletes. If there are no trained and talented athletes, the country cannot become the winner of the game. If government is using these heavy amount of money, in the basic levels such as providing facilities for molding the young children as real sports personals, it will be useful for future too. These children will be the shining stars of the country for not only one season, but also longer periods. This money will be an investment in this field. It is undeniable that enormous money is needed to create a successful sports team. Athletes' special requirements such as financial assistance, good coaches, tracks and so on, take away a good amount of money.To conclude, it is important to develop a good team of athletes for the country, which should be started from children. The organization of international sports events helps in the economical development indirectly. Hence, I feel, government should keep equilibrium between the two.
