In all of these activities, noone is "made" to be a loser, except by himself. Competition determines who, on any given day, is best at the competed activity. Repeated competition encourages losers to hone their skills, so that next time they might be winners.
Again these are artifical competitions. Sports does not equal life and its not really good training for life except perhaps for a corporation where workers must prance like trained dogs which comptete for the approval of the master.
