1. An objective contest with rules and a clear winner. Swimming is a sport, diving is not.
2. The athlete plays a bigger part than the equipment in deciding the outcome of the contest. Auto racing is not a sport. Horse racing is only a sport if you're talking about the horse.
3. Performed by an athlete. NFL is a sport. ESports (I cringe even using that term) is not.

I'll give some latitude here for a specialized athlete, but the general criteria here is can you take the athlete to another sport and expect they'd perform well at an intramural type level. I'd take Lebron James for my softball team over, say, Faker.

Based on this you think about Tiger Woods and think golf might be a sport. Then you look at John Daley and think, nah...
Step into a F1 car and tell me those guys aren't athletes and it isn't a sport.

Anyhow, to get back on off-topic, i belive the proper response to RBG dying is:

"My condolences go out to her family in this time of loss."

And thats it.

Exactly this. Even driving a high end sports car for a couple hours will wear on anybody. A F1 or NASCAR driver feels the impact of high G acceleration and deceleration far more than most people realize.
