    When I was in the high school, there is an annual athletic meeting which aroused me about social benefit of playing sport. The third grade in high school students leads the athletic meeting. The whole school divided into four teams to compete. I was the main leader of one team when I was in the third grade. The athletic meeting consists of nine games, and my team won the five games in eight games. It was a great victory and all of team members highly delighted and congratulated ourselves. The athletic meeting needed two months to prepare it. During this term, our team members promoted mutual friendship together. It was really priceless experience because it aroused me the importance of sports among people. Sports itself strengthen the unity effectually.

    8. Imagine you are a famous sports athlete. Describe your daily routine.

    I’m a soccer player and a member of the national team. It’s time for my morning traning. I jog every morning in the park near my house. After jogging, I also have to do a lot of weight training. After weight training, I eat protein-rich foods because protein helps build strong muscles. I have to be careful with what I eat as a soccer player. I usually eat protein and carbohydrates rich foods and try not to eat fatty foods. After breakfast, I study English. I started studying English a few days ago for playing overseas. And I train again. I do sit-ups and other exercises. A few month ago, I were wounded while I were training. Therefore I go to the hospital every day. My doctor even told me that if I keep training, I might not be able to play soccer. But It cannot be helped. I spend all day doing difficult physical exercise.

    What is your favorite sport?

    My favorite sport is short track speed skating. I first got interested in this sport when 2010 Winter Olympics was held in Vancouver, so I have watched almost every game and worldcup competition since 2010 season. One of my favorite short track athletes, Jungsoo Lee, participated in Vancouver Olympics and got three gold medals. Beside him, korean athletes are well-known for short track speed skating since 1980 and they also get good results in every game. The thrilling point in short track speed skating is that winning result is fixed by a few seconds. That is what makes this sport more exciting and worth watching.

    8. Imagine you are a famous sports athlete. Describe your daily routine.

    I’m a soccer superstar in the soccer world. I play for the Real Madrid football team in the Primera Liga. My fans are called me ‘The post-Ronaldo’. But I’m not proud of myself. I always make every effort to improve my skills. Every day when I wake up, I go to the training center directly. At there I take exercise every morning to build up my body. And after training I take a shower. And I have a lunch. I also go to the gym Because I have to weight training. After all of basic training is over. I attended a soccer tactical training with my teammates on the ground. I’ve practised and practised over and over again. I think continuous practice is crucial for excellent. And all of the training is over, I go to my home. And I start studying Spanish with my teacher. Because I can’t speak Spanish well. So Sometimes I can’t understand the coach’s instruction. Therefore, I study Spanish every night. I wish that I will be good at speaking Spanish in the near future. And it is time for bed. Have a good night.

    5. What is your favorite sport? Explain.

    Many people enjoy playing and watching sports such as soccer, baseball, basketball or ice hokey and so on. Although each sports has its own charm, I like to watch basketball game very much. As you know, soccer and baseball take a long time to get a score and it can make the game loose. In contrast, basketball game is very fast sports so I cannot miss one small point. Also, it has 1 point shoot, 2 points shoot and 3 points shoot, so it is difficult to guess which team will win until the last moment. Unlike baseball or soccer, in a basketball stadium, seats for audience are not much far from court. When visit the stadium, I’m very excited because I feel like I’m very close to players. Lastly, I can see so many marvelous scenes during the game such as dunk shoot, double clutch, floater and great set play with sharp assist. I really recommend you to watch basketball game!

    I prefer ball games, and I like table tennis the best among them. Every aspect of table tennis perfectly matches with me. First, it doesn’t need intense movements. Players can attack or defend in most of the cases by just using their upper bodies, and the most exhausting act is getting the balls that were out. This aspect also makes table tennis significantly less dangerous of getting hurt than quite a lot of sports, which is attractive point for people who are scare of getting hit like me. Second, players can control ball’s movements in extreme. They can cause ball to go faster or slower when bounded, drop fast, or they can even make it curve like an UFO by using various techniques to alter ball’s spin, making table tennis much more fun. Finally, it doesn’t acquire much money for equipment. For example, to play soccer, not only soccer balls but also soccer shoes are necessary practically, which are not that cheap. However, table tennis’ rackets and balls are relatively cheap compared to other sports’ equipment, so it is not that burdensome of equipment being worn or broken. Surely, table tennis is the best sport that perfectly suitable and greatly enjoyable for me.

    2. What do you think are the social benefits of playing sports?

    I have been playing basketball since i was in elementary school. I spent so much time playing it, because it is one of my favorite sports. I thought basketball can make me healthy and enjoy. but I had never thought it can help the relationship with others. However, When I went to America alone, I learned that sports is a big tool of making friends. It wasn’t easy to make friends without going to school in America. so I went to Gym and started playing basketball. Being an Asian in the basketball court was uncomfortable but I just tried to have games with Americans and became so close to them. I spent really great time with American friends and that was a moment I can’t forget. If I didn’t play sports with them, my american life could be so boring. I realized from my own experience that sports is not only good for health but also can be a social benefit. I would like to play sports forever !

    #6. Who is your favorite athlete/sports team? Explain.

    Have you ever heard the story of a little girl that has become one of the best figure skaters in history? Kim Yu-na, a little girl dreamed of becoming the best skater in the world has become an Olympic figure skating champion in 2010. Figure skating super star and Olympic champion Kim Yu-na is my favorite athlete. I respect her for her passion, endeavor and courage. As we are all know, she practiced every day for hours and hours. Perhaps, she fell down hundreds of times on the ice. However, she didn’t give up and practiced and practiced over and over again with passion. And finally, she became the Olympic figure skating champion after years of hard work and training. With her passion and endeavor, she overcame several obstacles she has faced since she began figure skating at the age of seven. I also decide to will never give up on achieving my goals like her. And I also respect her courage. Surely, the greatest cause of stress for her was the constant tension and anxiety from one completion after another. And she had been discriminated against in many competitions like Sochi Olympics. However, she always showed the best flawless performance and surprised many figure skating fans around the world. She has made history in world figure skating. In sum, I want to emulate her passion, endeavor and courage and would like to become a person as a talented, respected and representative of South Korea in the near future like her!!

    I really like swimming. Actually I hate sweating and vigorous sports. However, swimming is not a vigorous sport unless I fight with a rival in the water. When I swim, not only I can exercise without sweating but also I can float in the water. I really like those freely feeling. Therefore, swimming is really helpful for someone who has trouble with joint or disabled person. Moreover, it is good at not only physical health but also mental health. Swimming is a quiet sport. Even in the game, we cannot talk with each other and compete in our own lane. It is just a struggle for oneself. To say my story about swimming, I started swimming quite a long time ago. When I was 8 years old I go to a swimming class almost every day. I learned many things such as breaststroke, butterfly leg, backstroke, diving and submerging. A year after I finished the whole course of swimming. Actually when I swim these days, I do not use those skills. I swim in freestyle like a dog or I just splash around and have fun with my friends. However, it is really fun time and when I was float in the water just closing my eyes or opening my eyes and watching moving clouds in the sky, it is the best peaceful moment. Oh, I cannot stop to think swimming in the sunlight!

Korean baseball League insists of ten teams. They are based on many cities. In my youngster, I could not visit the baseball stadium, because these teams were based on cities to which I could not go.

    My favorite athlete is Kim Yo-Han. He is volleyball player of LIG Insurance in Korea.
    His tall is 200cm. his tall is one of his weapons to his position, Left of Wing Spiker. (Wing Spiker is attacker in volleyball) This position, Left, does not attack. Therefore, it is very special to see Spike of Kim Yo-Han. He is 31 years old now. When he became an pro volleyball player of LIG , he was 22 years old.
    When i was second grades of middle school, I saw him for the first time on TV sports program.
    At the time, he worked as a volleyball player of Inha University and he was selected to the national volleyball player for Doha Asian Games. And he won and got a gold medal in the competition.
    Lastly, there are some reasons why Kim Yo-Han became my favorite athlete.
    One reason why I like him is he has perfect skill as his appearance. Another reason is that he always tries his best.

    I think negative aspect of sports is excessive competition between players. Well-intentioned competition can motivate each other positively. Without a sense of rival, players will live in ease. So competition is essential part in sports. But when that degree of competition become excessive, it can be a problem. There are many cases that some athletes are disqualified for taking a prohibited drug. They take that medicine because of too excessive atmosphere. They feel pressure and go to evil way to be a world champion due to performance based system. Without that case, due to excessive competition, there are fight between competing country. And also some people blame violently when players get low grade. So excessive competition is not a good manner of sports.

    5. What is your favorite sport?

    Most sports are considered to be a things of male. In contrast, figure skating is regarded as a typical woman sport. In explaning, first, it has so many artistic parts although it is a sport. Athlete skates as if dancing to the various music. Every player choose his/her concept of skating incuding music, movement, dress and even expression. My favorite player, Kim yuna is very famous for her excllent artistic temperament. However, In figure skating, technical part is also important as much as an artistc. Various kind of techniques such as Jump, spin, step are fundamental requisite of the score. These make figure skate be a sport not an art. Finally, as figure skate has artistic side, it is regarded as woman sport but it also has a powerful and strong attraction.

    4. What is one negative aspect of sports?

    Sports are entertaining, exciting, and energetic. However, there are many problems behind this entertainment. Most of these problems are caused by money. Competent athletes earn more money, so they want to get high records. For this, athletes take illegal drugs to perform better. However, these drugs might cause heart attack and other harmful side effects. Regardless of this danger, many athletes still use illegal drugs. There is another problem, match fixing. Gamblers give money to coaches or athletes for their gains. Then, coaches give information about games or fix games. In result, hard workers’ efforts do not paid off. Some athletes killed themselves for this problem. This must never happen again.

    7. Do athletes make good role models?

    This is case by case. My role model of sports star is Yuna Kim. I think she always does her best and many people also like her. She gives a lot of charity for figure, sports or anyotherthing. And her activity inspire a passion to youngsters and people. However, all atheletes are not evaluated excellent or great because of their activity either. For example, Michael Phelps was deciplined as drunk driving. It could effect to adolescence or child. They are easily effected by sports star or athletes. Thus I think this is case by case and up to the activity or their behaviour.

  18. April 12, 2015 9:16 pm

    4. What is one negative aspect of sports?

    When we watch Pro Soccer Play in TV, There are some extreme sports fan. They are called Hooligans.

    I am a famous tennis player in the world. I usually wake up in the morning at 7o’clok and do jogging near mountain with my personal weight trainer. She makes me shadow-boxing or weight training like push-up, lunge, and squat in the middle of running. After that, these days, I am practicing service. My rival, Serena Williams, is great receiver. If I were the best server, I would have won the half of the game with her by service. At lunch time, I eat nutritionally balanced diet made by my personal nutritionist. I take low fat and high protein diet to make a great arm and shoulder muscles. In the afternoon, I usually do tennis with my couch but I sometimes have a private time such as meet my friend and a business time such as dinner with my sponsors, interview and photoshoot in the sports magazine. As mentioned, because I am a famous tennis plyer, I meet my fans from time to time. Lastly, before sleeping, I watch some videos about rival’s game and my game that I defeat.

    5. What is your favorite sport? Explain.

    I’m very bad at doing sports regardless of all kinds. Many friends of mine had even opposed me to get into their team. So I was a timid student in the P.E class. However, there was the only time that I could take part in the sport activity with proud. The answer is: race, especially long-distance race and it is my favorite. This is a simple sport that most of the people can do it. The rule of this game is just run towards your final goal. And the main reason why I love this sport is because after I reach the goal, it gives me a huge sense of accomplishment and relieves my stress. Also, I like this sport because I’m good at running even though I’m short. Actually, I was the key player of race, representing my middle school when I was 15. I think I gained the muscular strength naturally because my parents usually have taken me to the mountains in weekend since I was a kid. And still I’m excited whenever I have a chance to race!

    6. Who is your favorite athlete/sports team? Explain.

    I do love baseball games. And my favorite baseball team is Hanwha Eagles.
    Hanwha Eagles has been the worst team for several years. But In the past, this team, actually the team’s name was Binggrae Eagles at that time, was the best team.
    Anyway, the reason why I love this team is the turning tables. Every time I watch this team’s play, the team is losing. Then, Hanwha Eagles gets scores, and two teams’ score get same. After that, the opposite team suddenly gets scores, then Hanwha Eagles loses. These turning tables always make me excited. It is only when it comes to Hanwha Eagles. To watch an exiting baseball game, you should be a fan of Hanwha Eagles.
