When one hears the word sports, the first thing that pops into the mind is an athlete. A professional who plays a game full time. They are generally people who choose one game and then make it their expertise. Some examples of sports that are popular for a full-time career are:

  • Cricket

  • Badminton
  • Boxing
  • Volleyball
