Often, sports news stories take on social or political significance, such as the integration of Jackie Robinson into baseball in 1947. Other stories focus on the cost to taxpayers of hosting Olympic Games or football World Cups, and the huge compensation paid to top athletes.

Writing a good Sports news article depends on having strong knowledge of the sport you are covering. If you are not passionate about the sport yourself, you will struggle to make your articles readable. You must also be able to convey the sense of actually being there, whether it is at home plate for a game of baseball or at the base line in a basketball game. Transporting the reader is important, so try to find out as much as you can about the venue and talk to people who are involved in the event. This will give you a range of soundbites to use in your articles, and will help readers feel like they are there with you.
