My Favourite sport is swimming. because while swimming swimmers all major muscle strain. At swimmers beautiful figure. Swimming is an international sport. I love to swim in the sea in summer.

My favorite sport is skating because this sport makes people strong and health. I prefer to play sports, it's very interesting. I don't like football but it is very popular in Russia . It's a national sport . Russians love football.

Interesting your comment because you don't like football but your country likes. In Brazil is very popular and I like.

My favorite sport is volleyball. I like that the game involved two teams, as in many sports ball games. But special distinction, for example, football is a team that plays as one. There is such a large field, so the players the team can at any time to support you.

My favourite sport is chess. because:
1)chess teachs to be accurate.
2)chess teachs to be patient.
3)chess teachs to be competitive but it takes a lot of time.
As for me I prefer to play sports, it's more exciting. Football is very popular in Russia despite our football team doesn't win. I'm not a football fan.

My favorite sport is football soccer difficult to play. Russians love football because it is energetic and impressive. I like to play football because it is a national sport. Likes to play volleyball is an amazing sport and interesting

My favorite sport is football because this game requires constant attention and readiness. So what I do in the gym where you can develop your body muscles. In Russia, the Russian football as a national sport, rossian appreciate him for his cruelty and courage.

At the present time, I’m following UFC and ultrarunning because people push themselves to the limit there and, of course, these two sports are spectacular, each in its own particular way. I’m really looking forward to Kilian Jornet’s ascending Mount Everest this autumn in a record-breaking time.
I like to watch football or rugby live but unfortunately we don’t have great sports venues to host some big games here in my city. Watching and participating in sports are two different things for me which can give you completely different emotions. As for recreational purposes, it depends on whether I want an active or a passive rest. I mean I like both watching and playing. Would I want to be a famous footballer or a driver of F1? You bet I am! But I’m almost sure that every athlete is a fan of some sports that have nothing to do with their profession too.
Football is the most popular activity in the world and my country is no exception, but I, personally, haven’t ever adored this kind of sport.
