If we look at record mostly European nations stay in the top slot followed by American, Asian and Australian nations.

What makes these countries frontrunners? Well, there are multiple reasons and diverse perspectives to explain this, and even different organizations prepare the lists measuring the countries on different parameters. If we talk about the probable reasons, first and foremost is the level of expenditure and initiatives involved in boosting the sports of a nation. Second, comes the level of attention and support each category of sports gets. Even media has a bigger role to play here as in some nations few sports are more popular than others, and it inspires the budding champions to follow the bandwagon until other sports come in the light. Next comes the forte of each nation like Africans are good in long distance running and sprints, many Euro nations are remarkable in soccer, and ice sports, American and Australian nations produce good swimmers. These are just examples of few sports that these countries lead but not limited to these sports as they excel in multiple games. Moreover, the climate, incomes, lifestyle and cultural background contribute to a great extent in building champions in sports.

Last but not least, the training and infrastructure plays a crucial role and directly relates to the performance of champions in particular sports. Some nations still do not have access to best training facilities due to limited economic potential. The developed countries are equipped with the latest technology, infrastructure, more exposure, and better sports equipment.

Agility is crucial to almost all field games today. Therefore agility training and physical education have spread its roots all across the world and are an integral part of the school curriculum and sports training.

Agility training works on the overall performance of athletes and helps build strength, stamina, flexibility other than establishing co-ordination of mind and body while in motion with control. The games which require footwork and hand movements like football, rugby, tennis, etc. demand high intensity of endurance at a stretch. A plethora of exercises and equipment are thus available to ensure the practitioner gets the expected outcome and minimize the risk of injuries. Agility training is planned and designed as per the requirements of the particular sport like certain games require more footwork, some require more hand and wrist movement, and accordingly, the exercises work on those muscles, bones, and tissues and enhance sturdiness of the player.

Training starts with light warming up, and the frequency increases gradually. Agility hurdles, cones, markers, ladders, speedchutes are some equipment with which multiple drills are carried out. Lateral jumps in and out of ladder, and between cones, multi-directional sprint, diagonal sprints, Slalom and box sprints for speed and quick direction change, single leg hopping enhances balancing power, backpedaling, push-ups between ladders, crabwalks forward and backward enhance muscular strength of the upper body and lower body, shoulders, wrists, and abdomen. These exercises work holistically on our body while performing the drills and also sharpen our mental capabilities.

Agility training cannot be carried out in isolation. It requires proper equipment and guidance. Sports equipment providers work closely with the schools and sports fraternity to understand their requirements and challenges to come up with new and customized solutions wherever needed. GSI is one such organization that provides a wide array of physical education and agility training equipment.

It allows a flexible approach to process orders as per the demand of customers relieving them from the constraint of ordering in excess quantities. This industry is also a source of earning for a large number of people who rely on their craft skills for earning and small unorganized sector of retailers.
