The history of sport can’t be considered separately from the history of sports journalism that started already in 850 BC when Homer wrote about the victory of Ajax and Odysseus. Homer’s poetry is already considered to be the first sports journalism, notwithstanding that the real development of it began in 1800s when many sport events were fixed in written form. After the Olympics was held in 1908, the job of sports editor became popular (Andrews, 2005). Already in 1930 newspapers started offering vacancies of sports editors whose job was to create the content for sports news. The appearance of Associated Press in 1945 also contributed greatly to the popularity of sport as it published sports news on the front page that was never done before. Television also greatly influenced the development of sports journalism, particularly in the field of baseball and football (Andrew, 2005). The area of sports journalism underwent many changes after 1954. These changes were caused by the creation of illustrated magazine, where sports issues were covered (Smith, 2008). The evolution of technology makes the area of sport always available even for those who do not go info sports but are still fond of sports competitions. These people can trace the results of their favorite sportsmen and teams on TV (Smith, 2008). The given paper will discuss the area of sports journalism. It will describe the organizational structure of the field as well as everyday life and the job of sports journalists. The work will also consider the future development of the field, and the issues sports journalists are currently facing. 1.1.

This literature is very popular among sport fanatics but for those people who are not interested in sport it represents common news, which they may hear every day but do not focus their attention on. The specialists in the area under consideration usually prepare informative articles and broadcasts about sports competitions and the participants. They present fanatics with interesting interviews they make with sports stars. The articles and broadcasts prepared by sports journalists are not just informative but also analytical as their task is not only to present the information about the sports event, but also the analysis of it. “In Champion leagues, Saturday’s final against Chelsea, the Bavarians did everything they could to avoid wining: after months of effort, it was as though they didn't want the trophy. A lack of sharpness in every way characterized their game, from putting just seven of their 35 attempts on target to conceding possession again and again in midfield. All the hallmarks of their game: the precision in finishing, the crisp, assured distribution in midfield, were abandoned” (Myson, 2012). This is an example of the report prepared by sports journalists, the review with commentaries they provide. The task of sports journalists is to present us with deep analysis of the sports event and the explanation why these or those participants failed or succeeded. They have to analyze the reasons of failure or success of sportsmen. There are many controversial events in the sports history and for now the most controversial is Zidane header to Matterazi in 2006 (Alexis 2012). IN order to prepare interesting

He added that it would never be acceptable for him to speak frankly, because, this would always put him in an inferior position and may be in a danger sometimes.

Language is "phallogocentric", and thus Gilman appropriates images, motifs, metaphors, and symbols to show the design of her desires, frustrations and ultimately her freedom in a way that the patriarchal narrative logic is unable to rationalize. This narrative and all the symbols become a pre-Oedipal chaos of her chained mind.
