First, it constitutes a huge industry, recently estimated to reach a turnover of Tim Crabbe is the Chief $73.5 billion by the year 2019, 12 months from the time of writing (Heitner, 2015). Second, for a Executive at Substance, growing number of people across the world, sport represents a key part of their identity, whether Manchester, UK. they see themselves as participants (joggers, cyclists, golfers, etc.) or as fans (of Manchester United, of the New York Mets, of Roger Federer, etc.) or, perhaps, sport represents a key part of their identity in terms of their body image, maybe, or hardness/toughness or related behaviours, such as gambling.
