Sport is very important in our
life. It is popular with young and
old people. Many Russian people
do morning exercises and take
part in sport competitions.
Some people like sports, but they
only watch games, listen to
sports news. They prefer reading
interesting stories about
sportsmen. But they don’t go in
There are some popular kinds of sports in our
country: football, volley-ball, hockey,
gymnastics, skiing and skating. Everybody may
choose the sport he ( or she) is interested in.
Sport takes an important place in
my life. I think that sport helps
people to keep in good health.
Sport builds my character. It
teaches me to win and sometimes
to lose. Sport makes me strong, fast
and patient. It teaches me about
life. Sport makes men out of boys.
I like to be a star in sport! I like breaking
my records and I like to win.
I spend three or four hours every day – the
whole year round - taking part in
gymnastics competitions. I took part in the
competitions in Vladivostok, in
Blagoveshchensk and in Moscow . In fact,
when the school year starts I spend five
hours or more per day in the gym.
My father says that I’m too competitive. That’s right,
I don’t like to lose. But, unfortunately, I can’t always
win. For example, on 25th December 2011, I took part
in the competition in Blagoveshchensk. Of course, I
failed this competition and got very upset. My father
supported me and said: “You'll be a Man, my son!”
After these words, I work much harder!
