    socially favored

    Please help me make the conversation below sound natural as some kind of interview for a TV show or newspaper. Thanks a lot.

    T: Handball is another sport that Danish athletes do quite well in. Can you tell me why team sports are socially favored and bring Danish players greater success?

    D: As you know, the Danes like sports, and team sports appeal to Danes. Handball is a team sport, because a player cannot succeed alone. The idea of the community where different social classes play together has deep roots in Denmark. And unlike football, handball is equally popular with both sexes. During the winter season, the Danish national sport is handball. The Danish womenís handball team won gold at the Olympic Games three times in succession in 1996, 2000 and 2004. Most recently, the Danish menís handball team won silver at the 2011 World Championships.

    T: How about the social welfare system in Denmark?

    D: The basic principle of the Danish welfare system is that all citizens have equal rights to social security. Within the Danish welfare system, a number of services are available to citizens, free of charge. This means that, for instance, the Danish health and educational systems are free. The Danish welfare model is subsidized by the state, and as a result Denmark has one of the highest taxation rates in the world.
