1. Do men and woman prefer the same sports?
That’s an interesting question. Allow me to explain my personal views by shortly mentioning the following points: Firstly, there are few sports in which woman do not participate these days. For example, the woman’s football team from China did well in the Woman’s World Cup held in Germany recently.
2. What sports are played in your country?
There are many sports played in China. Allow me to mention a few examples. Basketball and football is played mainly by the younger generation. Football is popular amongst Chinese ladies. We have a strong national team who has done well in the recent World Cup. All age groups play table tennis, better known as ping-pong. Because it is an indoor sport, it is particularly popular in winter. Because of their relatively small physique, Chinese people play the so-called small-ball games like badminton well. Swimming, skating, and volleyball are popular as well.
3. What is the most popular sport in your country?
That’s a tough question. Allow me to explain my personal views by shortly mentioning the following points: Firstly, I believe football is the most popular sport. For example, all the big stadiums in our country are football stadiums. Secondly, the majority of youngsters are interested in the sport. For example, during the recent World Cup held in Japan and Korea, many in China followed the competition closely.
4. What is the most popular sport in your country?
Table tennis is extremely popular in China. That is to say, many people of all ages like to play it. China is often regarded as the world champions. For example, we often win a number of medals in this sport at the Olympic Games.
5. What are the sporting facilities like in your region?
That’s a good question. Allow me to explain my personal views by shortly mentioning the following points: Firstly, I suppose the sporting facilities are acceptable. For example, we are able to play any sport that we like. The problem is that the facilities are not available to everyone. At the moment many of the facilities are owned by universities and are available only to the students of that particular university only. Lastly, I believe the fact that the Olympic games are being held in China in 2008 will help to solve the problem to some extent. For example, the government will have to build many new stadiums and facilities in the next six years. Hopefully after the games, these new facilities will become available to the general public.
