Sports are more interesting...

If there are many different ways to be good. In the 50m dash, there is only one way to be good: speed. It's clear who is good and who is bad. But in (I think) more interesting sports, like tennis, there are many ways to be good. You can have good serves, good volleying, good net play, be quick, etc. And a good serve can mean many things: power, spin, and so on. So it's interesting to see if the guy with the fastest serve will beat the guy who's got a great two-handed backhand. Not so interesting to see if the guy who runs the 3:58 mile will beat the guy who runs the 3:55 mile.
