Millions of people all over the world are fond of sports and games. Sport is very important in our life. There are many proverbs about sports and health. For example: « Health is above wealth » and « A healthy mind in a healthy body ». Sport is popular with children and grown-ups because it helps us to keep fit, look slim, be cheerful, active and disciplined. It makes our body flexible and increases blood circulation. There is a great number of sports facilities in Moscow ( stadiums, swimming pools, skating rinks, tennis courts). Every school has a gym or a sports ground. We play indoor and outdoor games there. Pupils often hold competitions and win a victory over another school team. We have excellent basketball and football teams in our school. We also run a race and show excellent results. As for me, sport is an important part of my life. In summer I enjoy playing badminton, football and volleyball. In winter I like skating and skiing. Frankly speaking, I*m not keen on sport struggle. I prefer playing basketball to watching. My favourite sport is an acrobatic. I do acrobatic for 4 years. This sport is for active people because you must jump various jumps. You must be strong, too because acrobats are usually training in pairs and groups. Sometimes I have competitions. These are among the most important days in my life. I train for three or four hours three times a week. When I come to my training, I warm up firstly. If I stretch when my muscules are cold, I might do myself an injury. Then I begin working in pair. Since I began doing acrobatic I achive my aims. I can do many difficult jumps, different tricks and I became strong. The more I train the better I become. Practice makes me perfect. In a word, sport gives me a lot of joy and pleasure. It makes me more sporty and cheerful.
