excitement, danger. You can find all these in the different extreme sports
that have become popular last 10 years. Take bungee jumping. You jump off a
bridge and you fall and fall, and then, just before you hit the ground or
water, an elastic rope pulls you back. In skysurfing you jump out of aeroplane
and use a board to “surf” the air, doing gymnastics in mid-air! And
extreme sports on land can be just as dangerous.
sports have always an element of danger. For example snowboarding, which has
all the excitement of surfing but on snow, is more dangerous even than skiing.
Probably the most dangerous of all the new winter sports is snowrafting. You
sit in a rubber boat and sail down a mountain at great speed – and you can`t
control the boat!
course, water sports have always been fun. Ice diving, for those people who
are absolutely crasy. You put on diving equipment and dive under a frosen lake.
And, if that`s not enough, you try to walk upside down on the ice! I feel cold
just thinking about it.
A lot of people are not
fit nowadays. It`s a big problem today. If
you want to feel fit you’d better go in for one kind of sport or another. I
think that everyone must do all he
can to be healthy. Good health is better than the best medicine. All kinds of
physical exercises are very useful to make our bodies strong and to keep
ourselves fit and healthy. To tell the truth I don’t do sports regularly and
it is not an essential part of my daily life. In the morning I do some
exercises just to awake. In summer I go swimming as there is a beautiful lake
with pure water where my Granny lives. In winter I swim in the swimming pool.
I like to ride the bike. I shouldn’t call myself a sports fan. Of course , I
like to watch sports competitions on TV, like hockey or football. Also I
admire skiing championships , biathlon , swimming .
Doing sports a
man become strong, healthy and gay. He begins to take care of his health.
