This study focuses on the innovation of thinking politics in the physical education curriculum, with particular attention to the model of competitive education based on colleges and universities. The study aims to explore the strengths and weaknesses of this model and to examine its potential impact on the development of physical education curricula. The study uses a qualitative research approach to assess the effectiveness of the model through a literature review and case studies. The findings suggest that the competitive education model can enhance physical education programs, improve students' physical fitness, and promote healthy competition. However, there are potential drawbacks that must be considered. The paper concludes that a university-based model of competitive education can be an effective approach to physical education curriculum development, but the implications for students, faculty, and policy makers need to be carefully considered.
