Nowadays, young people admire sports stars though they often do not set a good example.
Do you think this is a positive or negative development?
Although top sports athletes are often poor role models, they gain the admiration of millions of youngsters. This is overall a negative trend for the young generation and society despite one single benefit it may bring about.
I think this trend could be profitable only if the young disregard the negative and focus on the positive aspects of sports stars’ lives. Ronaldo, a world-class central forward, for example, is infamous for his extreme individualism, but is still a role model of diligence and determination for all the efforts he has exerted in football training.
