Amateur participation in sport at lower levels is often called “grassroots sport”. The Olympic Games started with a principle of amateur competition with those who practiced a sport professionally considered to have an unfair advantage over those who practiced it merely as a hobby. With it being a necessary part of some sports such as motorsport , it is used in others to improve performance. Some sports also use it to allow off-field decision making.
