The term achievement is used with reference to act and result of achieving. East verb (to achieve), in turn, refers to get or get something.

Among the terms that can function as synonyms for achievement we come across words such as profit, achievement, result and even success.
In the context of sports, an achievement is a favorable result. It can be a victory that is achieved in a match or a trophy that is achieved by completing a competition.

Even if a humble team suffers the expulsion of three players in the first half and finally loses only 1 to 0 before the championship pointer, this adjusted defeat it could be mentioned as an achievement.
