Sports journalists get to know a bit of physiology (how the body works) and mechanics, lots of psychology, strategy and tactics.

It’s not all matches and games, it’s hard work, often including photography and live tweeting.  Some fans will love you; others will hate you because sports are such an emotionally charged field.
