MY ATTITUDE TO SPORT
Let me tell you about my own attitude to sports and sportsmen.
To begin with I may say that sport is one of the things that keeps people fit. I should admit that everyone must do all he can to be healthy. Physically inactive people get older earlier than those who have plenty of exercise. If you do daily exercises regularly you feel refreshed, have a good figure and that makes you feel good.Wise people say that good health is a great blessing. Everyone should do all possible to stay healthy. Being in good health means having both body and mind in good working order free from diseases and pain.There is a truthful Latin proverb: « A sound mind in a sound body ». All sorts of physical exercises are very helpful to make our bodies strong as well as to keep us mentally well.
If you want to keep yourself fit, you are to go in for sport and games. Sport is very popular in our family. Together with my father we have our usual morning exercises at home and twice a week we have our basket-ball training in the sports club and in summer we like to swim most of all, because swimming makes a man healthy and strong.
I'm a hockey fan too, I try to watch every hockey match on TV. Moreover I take part in different sports competitions, which our school organizes from time to time. The most popular kinds of sport in our school are football, basketball, gymnastics and wrestling. Some boys are also fond of boxing. Among girls calisthenics is very popular.
My favorite kind of sport is tennis. I have been playing it since I was eleven years old, and the more I play it, the more I like it. There is a good tennis court not far from my house and I often go there with my friends.
