Sport in Our Life

   Sports are popular all over the world. Most sports require a combination of physical fitness, mental sharpness, and teamwork. Sports are a good way to make friends. Both professional and amateur sports are a common ground for people of all ages, backgrounds and nationalities.
Many unusual sports are popular nowadays – parachuting, karate, different kinds of dance; but the traditional sports are still just as much fun.
   All kinds of physical exercises are very useful to make our bodies strong enough to keep ourselves fit and healthy. The most popular outdoor winter sports are shooting, hunting, hockey, skating, skiing etc. Some people greatly enjoy figure-skating and ski-jumping. It’s so nice to go to the skating-rink or the forest on a frosty sunny day.
   Summer affords excellent opportunities for swimming, boating, cycling and many other sports. Among outdoor games football takes the first place in public interest; this game is played in all countries of the world. Golf, lawn-tennis, cricket, volley-ball, basket-ball are also popular in different countries.

   If we train and play hard, we become fitter. Our bodies become suppler and stronger. There is a Latin phrase, “mens sana in corpore sano” (a sound mind in a sound body), which express the fact that your body is fit then your mind will be too. So we may say that sport is one of the things that makes people kin. Sport also brings enjoyment. Sport makes us more organized and better disciplined in our daily activities.
