Sport: general, in Britain
Sport is good for all

To begin a conversation about sport it is important to say some words
about it’s history. And I’d like to tell you about Olympic Games. An
athletic festival with competitions in music and poetry was held every four
years on the island of Peplos in Southern Greece. The period between the
games was called an Olympiad.
The games were held in honour of Zeus, the principle god of the
Greeks, who according to the legend lived on Mount Olympus. The festival
lasted five days and became a symbol of peace and friendship because in
keeping with the decree of that time no wars should be waged during an
Olympiad.
The athletes competed in running, boxing, wrestling, horse and chariot
racing and the like. The winners were given laurel wreaths in the temple of
Zeus.
And nowadays the Olympic Games have been regularly held in different
countries of the world and have become a wonderful tradition which helps to
bring people closer together.
People all over the world are fond of sport. Some people do morning
exercises, train themselves in clubs and in different sections. There are
many sport clubs that anyone can join. Light athletics gives much
opportunity to those who go in for it. It includes track field events:
running, long-jumping, high jumping, and others. But there’re a lot of
people, who like sport too but they only watch sport games and listen to
sport news. They prefer to read interesting stories about sportsmen. But
they don’t go in for sport.
Many children are fond of ball games: basketball, volleyball,
football. They are so exiting. Children like to take part in the
competitions to see who is the quickest, the strongest, who can jump best,
and who is the best swimmer or player. Pupils in different classes hold
competitions in different kinds of sport. All the competitions and games
are very popular with the pupils. A lot of fans always come to watch them.
But there’re some bad sides of sport. Sport today means big business
for both players and sponsors. Sporting events like the World Cup, which
has a big TV audience, make huge amounts of money. Companies like Coca Cola
and Adidas have paid a lot of money to sponsor a sport events. They know
that their names and logons at the sport stadiums and participants’
clothes. The high rewards have encouraged some sportsmen to take drags to
improve their performance.
As for me my favorite sport is swimming. It’s a wonderful sport. And
It’s a good exercise too. It makes people strong and healthy.
I think sport helps people to stay in a good shape, keeps them fit,
healthy and makes them more organized and better disciplined in their daily
activities.

because many kinds of sport have taken the origin in England.
The Englishmen love sports, they are called sports-lovers in spite
of the fact that some of them neither play games nor even watch them. They
