SPORTS. OLYMPIC GAMES. ATHLETES IN THE WORKS OF DOCUMENTARY AND FICTION BY FOREIGN WRITERS. PREPARED BY THE STUDENT OF FORM 9B AIDA GADZHIEVA SCHOOL NO11 SUPERVISOR- R.S.TARAEVA VLADIKAVKAZ,2013 A sound mind in a sound body As we know, sport is one of those things that make our lives really worth living. In one way or another, every one is involved in sports whether they play or watch it, or just know someone who does either. Although a lot of people seem to be interested in sports, not all of them consider it useful. There are so many kinds of sports, such as cycling, swimming, gymnastics, boxing, skating, skiing, rowing, yachting and many more in which anyone can take an active part or just be a devoted fan. My favourite kind of sport is tennis. I’ve been playing it since I was eleven years old, and the more I play it the more I like it. There is a good tennis court not far from my house and whenever I have a chance I go there with a friend of mine. The role of sport Sport plays an important role in our life. Some historians think that sports first appeared as a repetition of typical movements of a workman or a soldier performed to refine practical skills. Some tribes of Native Americans played a game which was alike football, but it had a religious meaning. The winning team had to be executed as the one that had pleased the gods of the tribe. History of the Olympics The Modern Olympics The headquarter of the International Olympic Committee are in Lausanne, Switzerland. The President of the IOS is Thomas Bach of Germany. The Olympic motto is’ Faster, Higher, Stronger’. The Olympic symbol is five interlocking circles coloured blue, yellow, black, green, and red on a white black ground, representing the five continents. At least one of these colours appears in the national flag of every country. It is generally agreed today that the Olympic Games are now commercialized and there is greed and drug abuse. However, it is a competition in which every country in the world takes part. Every four years, for a brief moment, we see these countries come together in peace and friendship. We feel hope again for the future of mankind.
