Sport is a singular, countable noun, e.g.

Motrocycling is the sport that Agostini excels at.

You can also use the indefinite article with it:

Many people consider hunting a sport, while some consider it just plain killing.

We also use sport without an article as a general, abstract idea meaning some sort of enjoyable and/or competitive activity:

In ancient Crete, specially trained athletes, both male and female, jumped on the backs of bulls and tried to ride them for sport, a very dangerous activity.

Since it's a countable noun, we use sports to refer to various or all forms of these activities:

My two favorite sports are gymnastics and mixed martial arts.(By Richard)
