Nurturing a passion for sports

I'm going to talk about the things I like to do — namely sports. Sports is a word that speaks for any active game that you can play. Activities like soccer, baseball and volley-ball are considered to be sports.

I love sports because it keeps me active and it's a good pastime. Some people aren't all that good at sports. To play sports, you need to have a certain talent. Either it would be to have the talent to move or even the talent to think very fast. When you begin to play a new sport you must first learn the technique or how to move in a certain sport.

Most of the time, you need to know some moves. Then you can take those moves and put them to your own style. A huge amount of people on the earth play sports. Some people like to play for fun and some are very serious, usually when they lose.

People who play sports are called athletes and there are athletes all over the world who want to compete with each other. That's why they decided to get together during to winter and the summer to play in the Olympics. One of these days I would like to participate in another big sporting event like ``les Jeux de l'Acadie``.
