Abstract: By expatiating on the scientific spirit and humanistic spirit of sport, the author proved that they have a uni-fied root and purpose, and complement each other. The author elaborated the course of development of sport in China over the years: due to different reasons in various historical periods, sport was dissimilated by military, politics and gold medals, and the scientific spirit and humanistic spirit of sport were artificially separated. The author put forward that the followings should be done immediately: strengthen the fusion of the scientific spirit and humanistic spirit of sport, and reconstruction their unification, so that sport gets back to “toys” from “tools”, and returns to serving such a fundamen-tal objective as the healthy development of human beings. Only by doing so can the real value of sport be embodied, and the sports undertaking in China be developed in a healthy and sustainable way.
