SPORTS AND GAMES
(You might want to write a more attention-grabbing introduction. Simply listing what you are going to talk about doesn't effectively capture your reader, I think.)
First of all I am going to explain why people devote themselves to sports, next I am going to tell you about various sports and finally
I would like to apprise (apprise is a fairly formal word, while you essay seems informal)
you of some problems that occur in sports.
a very important part of life and it is becoming more and more popular. Practicing
sports keeps us healthy, relaxed, and
maintains our figures
and strengthens our patience and endurance. All doctors recommend exercising (delete comma)
as a method of prevention and convalescence of various ailments. One of the best methods of exercise
for your body is swimming, as all your muscles are utilized in the activity.
There are two kinds of people who practice
s ports: amateurs and professionals. Amateurs do sports just for fun, to keep healthy (delete comma) or
to meet their friends while professionals are
paid for it.
Every sportsman wants to be at least a little good at his or her sport (if not even the best). How should he
achieve it? If we want to be really good, we should train our sport a lot and try to keep fit, which means to keep a balanced diet of fats, proteins, carbohydrates, sugars and food supplements (vitamins). Leading a healthy lifestyle also contibutes to success in sports. A healthy lifestyle can be interpreted
as not drinking
too much alcohol, not smoking or
drugs, but instead
regularly and mediating
to feel good mentally
There are various kinds of sports. There are games (team sports), races (individual sports) and combat sports. (Can you elaborate in this paragraph?)
Outdoor games are usually played on a sportsground, playground or a stadium. Tennis, basketball, volleyball are played on a court, while football, soccer and baseball are played on a field.
Typical outdoor games include
tennis or golf (however, golf may be considered an individual game – race Really?)
There are three types of surface on which outdoor sports are
played – turf field, clay court or artifical turf court. Some of these games may be played (deleted also)
indoors (volleyball, handball, basketball, floorball). Some games are only played indoors, such as
table-tennis, squash, snooker/pool/billiard, bowling and
Individual sports include
swimming, diving, water skiing, wind surfing (water sports – also include water polo (team game) This information isn't necessary or pertinent here, I think
.); skiing, ski-jumping, skating, (winter sports – also include ice-hockey, but it is a team game Once again, I don't think the information in this parenthese belongs in this paragraph.
); rally driving, Grand Prix driving, Formule 1 driving, motorcycling (motor sports), and various other athletics such as
decathlon, discus, javelin, high-jump, long-jump, pole vault, sprint, maraton, aerobic
body-building. Among combat sports self-defence, judo and other martial arts may be found
. There are also meditation activities (delete sports):
yoga, tai-chi and many others.
I will now try to describe a ball game – for exmple volleyball and a winter game – for example skiing. (This idea seems a little out of place. First, you speak generally about sports, but very thoroughly! Why have you chosen to go into depth about volleyball?)
Volleyball consists of two teams each with six players. It is played on a field or a beach (beach volleyball) and you need a ball and a net. The object of the game is not to let the ball touch ground on your side, but to attempt to make the ball hit the ground on your opponent’s side. The winner of the game is the team which had the ball touch the ground the least amount of times on their side.
There are two kinds of skiing: cross-country skiing and downhill skiing. For both of them you need ski poles, skis and warm clothes of course. If it is a race in skiing (for eaxmple at the Olympic Games), you need to be the quicklies one to win.
If you are engaged in downhill skiing, you ski on a piste, where a cableway or a tow is to help you to get to the top of the piste again.
Now, to tell a little about problem connected with sports, I mustn’t forget to mention there is a big drug problem in the
. A few sportsmen believe that the use of drugs to enhance their performance is a healthy thing to do.
We call these drugs “performance-enhancing drugs
“. Those who advocate for the legalisation of
performance-enhancing drugs believe that using certain drugs is no different from having a special diet. They believe only drugs which harm health and may be dangerous should be banned. There might be a question asked: “How is dangerous defined? Is it when someone dies?“. The biggest reason for their support is the idea that it would improve the image of their sport. However, in my opinion, it would worsen their reputation more… I do not support these ideas at all.
I would say that reasons for disagreement are clear to everyone. Drug abuse is unwise and may be dangerouos. (I'm sorry to say it, but there isn't much connect between your first idea (description of all types of sports) and your second idea (drug use in the sports field....)
So, how can we avoid drug abuse in sports? Random drug testing should be probably enhanced. Frequent drug testing would force athletes to concentrate on training, not drugs.
Another problem is with refrees. They are often influenced by someone or something and the players also try to corrupt them often. (This mini-paragraph doesn't seem appropriate or pertinent to your text.)
To sum up, sports
is a very important part of our lives and probably not many people can imagine their lives without sports
. There are many kinds of sports so everyone can choose the best for him or her. We should also realize that sport races are just games and we should play fair, without tricking. (Is this last statement a reference to drug use? I don't remember you talking about trickery in games....)
