Also widely used by sports shooters so they don’t need to hold the weight of their heavy telephoto lenses. They usually have fast enough shutter speeds that they don’t need the full support of a tripod and often do not have enough space for a tripod.

Some wildlife shooters will use a monopod on their big lenses because it is more portable then a tripod. Again they are usually using reasonably fast shutter speeds, they just need something to support the weight of the big super tel lenses.
