Financial support from the government is important for all studies, arts, sciences, sports and so on. However, some people think the support in the arts should be more than in sports. From where I stand,I disagree with the opinion.

First of all, sports are necessary in our daily life. Doing sports is one of the best ways to have a healthy body. From this aspect, supporting our Olympic teams can promote different kinds of sports and make people have more interest in doing sports. For example, table tennis is popular in China. Almost everyone has watched matches of table tennis and played it once. Although the sport itself has some attractions, the good results made by our national team in international competitions are another important reason for this phenomenon. In some way, the financial support of some Olympic teams can inspire people’s enthusiasm in doing sports. However, the investment of the arts does not have such a great effect because for most people, the arts are not necessary in their daily life and it is difficult for them to get access to the arts.

Secondly, although the arts need a large amount of investigation, it is hard to demonstrate that the investment is worthy. Most investments in the arts do not have as much reward as expected. For example, the prince of a country have once bought a masterpiece of DaVinci at a high price which was then identified to be painted by one of DaVinci’s students. This investment is, of course, in vain. So the money spent on the arts sometimes is meaningless and the government could not always identify the rignt support. On the contrary, the support of sports can always make sense. The training is more effective with advanced facilities and better coaches.

In conclusion, the support of the arts should not be higher than the support of athletics.
