Judo, boxing, archery, showjumping, and many others are sports, but not games. Track & field and other forms of athletics are not normally included in the category of "sport." Athletics is athletics. At least, that's the way I see it. Or maybe this Russian sentence is saying: "Sport is sometimes more than JUST a game." Perhaps a Russian speaker could enlighten us?

I'm not sure if I understand how the inflection is working here, but how would you say "A game is not always a sport"?

Just "Игра не всегда спорт"?

Given translation was "Sports is not always a game." which is wrong on several levels.
