i hear huge focus clicking noise whenever attempt to press the shutter at sports mode. how to resolve this? anyone has idea?

Sports mode uses Tracking Autofocus, so the clicking is normal. The lens is refocusing to keep whatever is in the center of the frame in focus. Once you half press the shuttter release it locks on that object.
