For many people is sport the most popular free time activity. They can loosen up at sport, they can loose weight, can harden their bodies, they can reach better form and results. Or they can do it only for fun. Sport is available for everyone. It doesn´t matter if you are young or old. You can find the right sport for you.

For people who likes to be in the group of people there are collective sports and games like football, volleyball, basketball and many others. Football is the most popular game in the world, because everyone can play it. You can play football everywhere, the only think you need is a ball. There are two teams consisting of eleven players. Players are shooting goals. Who shoots the most of goals wins.

There are also winter and summer sports. The sports you can do only in winter(skiing, snowboarding) or in summer(swimming, yachting). There are also special sports for physically challenged people.

If you want to be the top athlete you have to start early. You should train several times a day and have a healthy lifestyle. If you became a topsportsman, you earn a lot of money, you are very popular, you have a lot of fans. There are lot of sportsmen who wants to be the best for every price. They use dopping to improve their physicall skills. I think it´s not the right way, because it´s too dangerous. They should be the best only with strong will and endurance.

The fans belong to sport too. They support their favourite teams or sportsmen. They are on every match, they carry their national or team flag and sing songs to help their team win the match. Many of them love watching sporting events on TV. When there is an important sporting event like a world championship people go home or to the stadium to watch their favourites. There are lot of sport competitions. From the national league through the championship to the Olympic Games. Everyone can find something for himself.
