In my opinion, cheerleading can only be considered to be a sport when engaged in competitively. This is because a sport is a physical activity that is governed by a set of rules and is engaged in competitively.
No...if it was a sport then why is it done on the sidelines of real sports?? Maybe we shoul consider selling hot dogs a sport...or even say spectating is a sport!! No not a sport at all..but it's fitness and exercise therefore it's good for you!!!
