It´s true that sports help us to keep our bodies in good physical condition. They keep us in good mental condition as well, because they offer us refreshments, relaxation and rest. Movement in the fresh air hepls the blood circulation and cleans the lungs. Doing sports help us lose a few of our excess kilos.
In the modern world a positive attitude to sports is becoming something of trend and a hit. Young people, and not just they, try to look sporty and dress in sporty clothes. We go to practise sports at various playgrounds, sport halls, covered pools, stadiums, tennis courts and fitness centres.
We can divide sports into three categories – summer, winter and all-season sports. The summer sports are athletics, aquatic sports, ball games, cycling, hiking, horse racing, skateboarding, roller skating, gliding and others. Nowadays we have different sport halls, so we can practise some sports during winter as well.
The winter sports are skiing, ski jumping, tobogganing, bobsledding, snowboarding, skating, ice-hockey and figure-skating.
The all-season sports are, for example, gymnastics, wrestling, boxing, body-building and table tennis.
Many athletes specialise in jumping – long jump, high jump, triple jump or pole jumping. For pole jumping we need also a fair amount of courage to „fly“. In this sport is very important a precision. We all know that a sportman can be disqualified for overstepping.
Another discipline is running. We can run on short, mid-range or long distances. Running requires a huge amount of persistence, agility and also stamina. Running as a sports discipline specialises mostly in the 100 m, 200 m, 400 m, 800 m and 1 500 m races, hurdles, 5 000 m and 10 000m races and the marathon.
We can do sports as an individual person or as a collective.
What about football? Almost every adult man is an admirer or fan of some professional football team. During the match, eleven players move around a football playing field. One of them is the goalkeeper. Other players are the backs, forwards and the so-called reserve. The entire match is watched over by a referee with the whistle.
Volleyball is a competitive sport and a sport for entertainment as well. On the volleyball playing field a net is stretched over the playing area. Over the net is beaten the ball. We should have knee pads for this sport. Each team, as in other collective sports, wears the same dress. In sports we call them sporting costumes.
