IELTS Cue Card – A SPORTSPERSON YOU ADMIRE
Each one of us has at least one favorite sport or game which we like to play ourselves or follow on different media. There are many sports channels on TV and sites on the internet which enable us to watch different matches and tournaments which take place around the globe. It is obvious that we have our own favorite sports star whom we love to see on the field. Let us look at a cue card that asks us to talk about a sportsperson whom we like the most.
Describe a sportsperson that you admire
- Who is the person?
- What is his/her achievement?
- Why do you admire him?
Like majority of my fellow Indians, I love to watch the game of cricket. If I talk of cricket in my country, Sachin Tendulkar is one name which shines like a precious diamond. He was a former captain of the Indian national team and is regarded as one of the greatest batsmen of all times. Tendulkar started playing the game at the age of eleven and made his test debut against Pakistan at the age of sixteen. He is a record holder by scoring one hundred double centuries and completing more than 30,000 runs in international cricket. He is lovingly called the little master or master blaster by his fans. He is also considered as the god of cricket by his fans and fellow cricketers. The government of India felicitated him with numerous awards and honors such as Arjuna award, Rajiv Gandhi khel Ratna award, Padma Shri and Padma Vibhushan. He is also the youngest recipient of the Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award. Not only is he a great player but a wonderful human being also. He always motivates and supports young players of not just cricket but other sports as well. In the end I’d like to say that we all are extremely proud of Sachin Tendulkar and wish that all the young players continue to gain inspiration from this great personality.
