Not all on the same of course. But as there is a high chance that more than one sport
is performed on a particular one, as you just acknowledged, a yes/no scheme is more
helpful than a bunch of contradicting duck tags.

Example, small school sports ground with straight track used for sprint+jump:

Thrower place used for 3 kinds:

No I just said I would tolerate its existence. So will I also tolerate your thrower's pitch
tagged sport=shot_put, unless I see a kid throwing pebbles from there, then I'll come and
retag it sport=athletics + athletics:shot_put=yes + athletics:pebble_throw=yes, because I can't
encode the pebbles otherwise.
