Some countries achieve international sporting success by building specialized facilities to train top athletes instead of providing sports facilities that everyone can use. Do you think it is a positive or negative development ?

Numerous researchers claim that supporting professional sportsmen by providing necessary
facilities
to help them get trophies or medals in international leagues is of importance, rather than spending money on public sports
facilities
.
This
essay totally agrees with the sentiment.
Although
improving the average citizen’s health is now a serious concern, the opposite opinion seems to bring about a wide range of benefits due to the reasons below.
First
, it is common knowledge that nowadays, the development of technology and fast food has created various negative influences on people’s health, leading to lacking time to do exercises and imbalanced diets.
However
, if citizens desire to keep in shape, they can totally spend time working out at home
instead
of going outside and depend on specialized
facilities
, which may cause some dangerous infectious diseases
such
as COVID 19.
Moreover
, it is clear that with the same amount of money, the government can provide
facilities
for sports centres, which will be used for many generations whilst in public playgrounds, it might be broken easily as not many people do not know how to use them. Another reason is that, when an athlete returns home with awards on their hands, it is actually not only their personal pride but
also
the nation’s pride. It is easy to understand as citizen’s living standards are getting higher, they spend more time caring about sport and in international leagues, it is about a country’ honour, not only a prize.
For example
, in 2018, when U23 came back to VietNam after the U23 Football League, so many countries in the world have known about Viet Nam and how talented their athletes were. All things balanced, it is my firm conviction that the government should spend money on supporting athletes
instead
of providing public sports
facilities
.
