Fields such as businesses, sciences and music all incorporate notions of time into their respective measuring systems. When people try to define it, they often say that is it what prevents everything from happening at once. Without time there would be no real structure from one event to the next and there would be no real way to measure the past, present and future.
For sports people, time is especially crucial. Recording times for competitions as insignificant as the school sack race during sports day to recording the times at the Olympics to see who how won a gold medal, time needs to be recorded precisely. Time is often measured in hours, minutes, seconds and milliseconds to get an accurate reading.
