Rapid responses are electronic comments to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on bmj.com. A rapid response is first posted online. If you need the URL (web address) of an individual response, simply click on the response headline and copy the URL from the browser window. A proportion of responses will, after editing, be published online and in the print journal as letters, which are indexed in PubMed. Rapid responses are not indexed in PubMed and they are not journal articles. The BMJ reserves the right to remove responses which are being wilfully misrepresented as published articles.
Editor, I would like to share some ideas on the benefit of sport
competition inspection. Indeed, the evidence might show a non cost effective investment. However, some indirect usefulness,
especially in mind, might not be assessed. At least, "fun" is the thing
that the sport inspector can get. For sure, fun means happiness, and this
also means good mental status and further good physical status. In
addition, after inspection, someone might play more sport activities and
this can promote health.
