This solution appears to work best with a specification of a set of sports in 
the schema.org site, which I don't think is part of the current proposal. 
Then it requires that these sports be linked to an external theory of sports 
that has generalization.

If sports are going to be entities in schema.org, I would think that it would 
be best to have some sort of specialization/generalization relationship 
between these entities.  As you say, there are a number of categories where 
this is useful.


PS:  I made some edits to your solution to fix what I see as some errors.
