What is your favorite sport?

I like baseball, even though I am not good at playing it, I like to watch a whole lot!! :D

I'm not sure if it's a proper sport but I love watching wresting-particuarly the cruiserweights. I also enjoy watching gymnastics and am amazed by the things people can do to their bodies.

I'm not very good at playing sports but I do like dancing. I think everybody can dance - some are just better than others!

Love the spirit, madame_tigre!

I enjoy swimming (although I can only use one type of stroke) and horse riding.

I love swimming and I like watching Kendo, which is a strange japanese sport. But apart from that i'm too lazy to do another sports and the fact that i wear a body brace so i don't have to do p.e at school.

I like trampoling, horse rinding and swimming. I love doing back drops on trampolines because time seems to slow down to a snails pace and you can let your mind wander..... until you hit the trampoline and come zooming back to earth.

I like cross country, trampolining, swimming and badminton.

Cross country is good because it is a very personal sport and you do not have to compare with others. I run on the outer rings of the track to avoid veering off at the curve. I also find it burns of stress and nervous energy so I feel calmer after I have run.

I like trampolining because it is a crazy sport and even if I can't do the positions very well I can still share it with my friends (provided they keep a fair distance from me, I have been known to cause accidents!) We can all do silly jumps and then chase each other on hands and knees round the trampoline.

Swimming is good because it burns off nervous energy and stress. It also improves coordination by helping to synchronize arm and leg movement.

I like badminton because I can play it with my friends and the shuttlecock moves much more slowly than a ball and therefore makes it easier for me to coordinate my movement and work out where the shuttlecokk is in relation to me. Although I am by no stretch of the imagination a brilliant player, I can, on a good day, avoid embarassment.
