Yes, I’m really into watching sports on TV because it entertains me a lot. Besides, I like seeing other people do the things that I can’t do and wish I could do.

Yes, I sometimes play football in the morning with my friends in the garden at the weekends to get some exercises.

My favorite sports star is a footballer called Messi who is a forward for Barcelona. He has the perfect blend of speed, strength, skill, and toughness. He is also an icon in the modern football game.

I guess the most popular spectator sport in China is basketball. Many young people in China play basketball but mainly boys play it. Basketball courts are easy to find and it doesn’t require any specific facilities or expensive equipment other than a basket and a ball.

Well, I guess what I’ll try in the future is tennis because it can help me build strength and can improve my flexibility and balance. Besides, tennis is a social activity too; it’s a sport I can enjoy with friends if I play regularly.

Oh, no, though my life is quite a bit boring, I’m too scared to do any extreme sports because I don’t think I have enough guts to put myself in these difficult situations.
