It’s not surprising that sport is given a great deal of attention all over the world as it helps to bring up strong and healthy people. It creates a healthy body for a healthy mind. It also makes people more self-organized and better disciplined.
An important attraction of sport is also its competitive and challenging nature. Men have always wanted to prove who is the strongest, the quickest, the highest. The roots of men’s desire to display their physical health and beauty go back to ancient times when the idea of the Olympic Games first appeared. In ancient Greece the Olympic Games were held every four years. The winner was given a branch of wild olive and that was the greatest honour. After nearly 300 Olympiads they were stopped by the Roman emperor of the time. 1500 years had passed, and the Games started again in Greece in 1896.
I am sure that either as a player or merely as a spectator almost every person likes sport. Some people do sports professionally, others have regular work outs to keep fit, but not to take part in contests.
As for me, I am not a sporty person in the true sense of the word. I don’t take much interest in sports. Nevertheless, I regularly attend fitness lessons at which I jump, run and play games, but I have no ambitions in sports, I never worry about the results.
As a fan I do have my favourite sport, which is figure-skating. I have never done it myself, but I love watching World and European championships. I am always fascinated by the grace, speed and skill of the skaters and how well they can dance on the ice.
There’s no denying, the fact that great sportsmen have even the right to be called outstanding people because they’ve done their utmost to reveal man’s ability both in the physical and moral aspects.
