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.

I am sorry when I wrote seats I really meat sits

To be honest, there is no sport that really captivates my attention, I am not that kind of person that seats down to watch a football match or another sport, I am not even speak about playing it. Even though football is very popular in my country I don't pay any attention to it.

My favourite sport, like I normal brazilian guy, is football, because I love the atmosphere of that and I was born in a football culture, I also like other sports such as swimming and atheticism. I prefeer to play instead to watch because it's more exciting at all. In my country? We are known as the land of football, Ronaldo, Romário, Zico and the greatest of all time Pelé were from Brazil, and we are five-time world champions.

And PLEASE, it's FOOTBALL, not SOCCER *-* hahahaha

I enjoy both playing and watching sport. I usually watch football, my favorite club is Liverpool. Football, badminton, voleyball are the most popular sports in my country. Ho Chi Minh who was the president of my country realy loved sport and he encorage people play sport to improve healthy.

Tennis is my all-time favorite sport! Although, I, myself has never played one in real life. I love Tennis because it's an endurance sport and it can go on for hours and hours. There is no time limit set for the game and match. Just need to win 3sets or 2sets and its up to the players how fast they'll be able to achieve it. And it's an extremely exciting sport. One of my goals in life is to witness any Open Tournament, and Wimbledon is on top of that list. Moreover, when I was school age, I played a lot of sports like Football, badminton, and Volleyball, but now that I've grown older, I prefer to watch Sports instead. In addition, Football has gained more attention over the recent years in my country, but it's still not as popular as Basketball.

My favorite sport is badminton, because I enjoy playing it. It doesn't need much effort to get the hang of, and it can be played by two or four people at one time.

I like to participate in both. It is exiting to watch great sports talents and skills. And when it is my turn, I take a lot of pleasure in improving my own skills.

Football is quite popular in China. The Super League takes place very year. Many people are fans, they enjoy it a lot.
