Sample Answer

Sports channels these days telecast all kinds of sports events like a cricket tournament, Wimbledon champion ship , FIFA world cup, Olympics etc. While watching Times sports channel, I came across a spectacular equestrian show. It was show jumping , a competitive equestrian event in which horse and rider are required to jump a series of obstacles that have been designed for a particular show. I was really fascinated by this sport as it is spectator friendly and easy to understand. The jumper has to negotiate a series of obstacles, where emphasis is placed on height and width. The time taken to complete the course is also a consideration. Horse’s athleticism, agility along with rider’s precision, accuracy and responsiveness are tested. Most importantly, jumping tests the partnership between the rider and the horse.
I would like to join a riding club in the near future and learn the basics of riding. First of all, walking the horse has to be mastered followed by trotting and then cantering and galloping. After being able to perfect these skills, jumping has to be started with low lying obstacles and then gradually adding height to them. Like all sports, proper equipment, dress code and safety precautions have to be considered. The riding gear includes a pair of riding shoes, helmet, riding stick and trousers called breeches.

ANS There are many reasons why sports are necessary. For me, playing a sport is about having fun and spending some time with my friends and family. Apart from that, sport helps you to keep fit and healthy , not just physically but mentally as well.

ANS I personally believe that sportsmen and women have a huge responsibility to be the perfect role models for children as they are looked upon by their young fans. For instance, Mahender Singh Dhoni and Sania Mirza are amongst those sport stars who have inspired millions of young children in my country due to their hard work, determination and untiring perseverance.

Q3. Do you agree that sport stars earn too much money?
ANS I believe that a lot of hard work, discipline, endurance along with time and money goes into making of a sports star. Those who reach the peak in their respective sports have actually proved themselves to be the best. Also, players have a short career span and they bring laurels for their countries. All this justifies the amount of money and fame they earn.
